It has only been 7 days since brew day. I didn't use a yeast starter. The yeast was bought from the store in a liquid but only about 2 ounces. I followed the instructions on the little bottle. Bring to room temp, shake and pour directly into fermenter. Temp during fermentation stayed around 76 F. We just moved it to the secondary today. I was going to wait and see if it started to bubble again before I did anything.
