I brewed an AHS Abita Purple Haze clone night before last and I'm still not getting any activity. Due to trying to sell our house I haven't brewed in a while so this kit was about 7 months old. The yeast was a Wyeast Activator and was also about the same age. I hit my OG right on, got it down to 68 degrees and pitched the yeast. Nothing. I had another identical Activator in the fridge which was about 8 months old, and same thing. Nothing. So I thought I'd warm it up. Got it up to about 75 over an 8 hour period and kept it there overnight. Nothing.
What are the odds that I have two dead packs of yeast? With those two bad packs in there, can i just order some more yeast and pitch it as soon as it gets here? I'm about 2 hours from the closest LHBS so I can't just run out and get some.
