I have a quick question I was hoping someone could help me with. I made a yeast starter yesterday afternoon and it was kind of a train wreck just because I had a boil over. I do not have a stir plate so as often as I can remember I give the starter a swirl. I am brewing tomorrow but every time I check on it, it seems the yeast has just settled to the bottom of the container and there is no visible sign of any fermentation. When I swirl the yeast is very chunky.
Is this normal ? Thanks in advance.
