Idk why you are so hostile. All i ever said is that nb forum seems to get low traffick and most the answers i was getting weren't thought out or informative. I am a mechanical thinker and if someone who doesn't know about cars hears a different noise in thier car and they think something might be wrong when they tell me about it i dont tell them to relax until something breaks. I inquire back to give them back any useful knowledge i might have. I see the two as very similar so if you want to take anything i said as bad mouthing feel free because thats not the case.

Ok i will admit egg on my face at this point. At 72 hours and after i bought another pack of 3068 wyeast just today, i am finally getting some activity. Its not much but enough to make me want to hold off on adding yeast... So i will see what happens. I possibly killed a good amount of it but its coming back after some serious lag.
Do yeast reproduce while in beer? i may have had a low cell count due to that sani bath and now they are reproducing and cominy back?....

@bottle bomber-if it ends up turning out i will hold up my end abd send a bottle. Let me give it another day and i will update.

Absolutely yeast reproduce in beer. That's what they do. That's what a yeast starter is is a very small batch of highly oxygenated beer that the yeast thrive in, doubling, tripling their numbers. By the time a 5 gallon batch of beer is fermented out you have grown a couple pounds of yeast cells. Glad you're starting to see some action.

Either that or they were just hiding the evidence to see how bad carbonzx would freak out.

BTW, carbonzx, I believe I see a bunch of yeast giving you the bird in that carboy. That's for not believing in them.

Not so fast! It hasn't even gotten infected, or not carbonated yet.
