dead yeast ???
I made a yeast starter for the first time. 24 hours later i pitched it in a batch of bourbon barrel stout og 1.069. the next morning temp 63 degrees no fermentation yet. this is unusual since it always seems to start by the next morning. did i pitch dead yeast? if i did is it too late to fix the problem with new yeast?:(

If your started started, you yeast is not dead. WHat are you defining as fermentation starting? If you are going by airlock bubbling, don't use that as a guide. You made a starter, you did good, just relax and let them do their thing.
