I experienced the same with my bry-97 pitch into a 1.050 amber ale. My bucket is transparent and I can usually see krausen forming, and with this batch it was a solid 48 hours or so before I noticed anything forming... Usually us05 takes off quicker. The bry-97 looks to be fermenting away happily for now, but unless something magical happens fermentation wise, I'll have to see if a longer time and an increased cost over us05 is worth it. I've yet to taste or evaluate this ferment yet, so I'll save judgment till then.

This was the same price as 05 at my LHBS, how much more is it for you?

This will really illustrate how cheap I am:

Us05 - 3.88
Bry-97 - 4.50

I think all Danstar products are that much more across the board, which isn't much, but the slow take off has not impressed me thus far.

I was worried about the slow take off as well, it seems like that's normal for this from reading other posts on here. I'll be looking forward to seeing bullinachinashop's experiment. What beer did you brew for this bullinachinashop?

Just picked some up at my LHBS today, for use on an APA tomorrow. I'll let you know how it shapes up.

***slight update***

I pulled my American Amber ale from the temp controlled fridge and left it out at room temp to allow the yeast to finish and clean up. I pulled the lid off the bucket and a good bit of (I'd say beginning to fall) Krausen was still present, which for what I'd normally use on a beer like this - us05 on the fourth day is slightly out of normal for my experiences.

But, all ferments are or can be different, and we'll see what happens in about 10 more days when I'll rack to a keg and either serve or it will wait for a spot on the line up. To be continued....

I brewed an American Pale Wheat. I hopped it as an hoppy APA with Centennial and Cascade. 42 IBU's, 1.052 OG

The Bry-97 took off at about 36 hours and has been really active since.
I just checked it and lucky I did as I was close to blowing the lid on the fermentor. I just cleaned and replaced the airlock. I was going to check gravity tonight as I have another beer to transfer, but I don't feel like thieving through 5 inched of krausen.
The 05 has about 2.5" of krausen and is just chugging away.
More updated to follow.

I pitched yesterday evening at about 6 and am seeing activity about every three seconds. Not having the slow take-off that you guys have described. FWIW I rehydrated according to the package instructions.

I've got a pack. I'm gonna use it in a CTZ SMaSH I'm planning this winter. Hopefully I can see more of the yeast properties this way.
