Default Wyeast Smack Pack

Last night a Made a IPA, and was the first time I ever used a Smack Pack. it worked nice. I Smacked it when I started getting everything together. When I Was ready to pitch the Yeast it was ready to go. hopefully it starts in the beer as nicely as it did in the pack. I will probably use them again, they seem to me to be the best thing so far. but only time will tell. has not taken off yet when I last checked about two hours ago. I pitched at about 0130.

Tom,
I love them, use them regularly too... Tonedef131, not sure I get your point... You bothered that tom uses a red font? they wouldn't give us that option if they didn't want it used. Or that he's just used a smack pack for the first time? I find that pretty cool myself, when I first used them I was pretty impressed as well. Your own mini starter.

Tom what was 0130? 1:30 in the am, or ? I'm not sure I follow that number.

This is clearly not the case.

It's fine. Use whatever font you want.

Good to hear about the smack packs. I plan on using my first on Sunday. Now I know I am alright smacking my bitch up just before I get started.
