Us05 not starting

Postby blinky » Mon Jun 13, 2016 21:53

So I pitched my us05 into 19 degrees wort last night about 5pm. Today at 6pm, no activity, at all, is this normal? Wondering if it's the same tomorrow night if I should chuck in another packet?

Last time I used 05, last month, I noticed a slow start. Nothing after 24 hours but started to show a krausen by 48 hours. The beer has turned out fine, so I'd be inclined to leave it and stop peeking!

Did you aerate your wort?

Or rehydrate your yeast?

Found the problem! Had not quite sealed the fv, once I did it was bubbling within an hour! Won't make that mistake again....
