ok...i just checked it this morning and the airlock is slowley bubbling. 36hrs since pitch, very small layer of yeast and foam...hope this doesn't give he a bunch of off flavors...the yeast was fresh, manufactured in feb. , I didn't make a starter because I wasn't 100% sure if I was going to brew that day. I figured the gravity seemed low enough. I'll let you guys know. thanks for every ones help so far.

dry yeast doesn't need a starter. liquid yeast benefits from it, but i've done them without starters and the beer was still great. yours will be good too

It sounds like it's going to be fine to me. I'm a pretty new brewer (done about 10 all grain batches), but have had similar things happen with no negative repercussions.

yeh it was the second AG batch for me and it's totally taken my infatuation with the hobby to a new level. I've noticed alot of times when your beer gives you a scare it just needs sometime...

I've got krausen now...about half an inch...i referred to it as foam before because I still believed it to be leftovers from aeration. there is wort moving and a bubble every so often. I'm excited.
I used 1465 last time with great results. I'm trying an american strain to see the difference.
