Just put my third batch into the fermenter. I decided to used liquid yeast this time (WL London Pale Ale for an India Pale Ale recipe) instead of the dry stuff and have some questions about the differences between the two.
I didn't use a starter as the OG for this batch was not above the amount requiring one. I followed the directions and pitched the yeast into the 5 gal. wort at about 72deg. and stirred for several minutes before applying the lid and airlock.
After a little less than 24hrs I still don't see much sign of fermentation occuring. Is this normal? Because at this time with the dry yeast I saw much more activity.
I used the yeast within a day of it being shipped to me, but when I recieved it the ice pack that came with it was already spent....could this be the problem?
Thanks for the help.
