I also used fermcap foam stopper. Do you think that has anything to do with it? Oh and I pitched at the right temp. When, if when should I think about repitching
I just used bry-97 for the first time on Saturday... 24 hours later; NOTHING!
I saw a slight Krausen at 48 hours... OH... and its OG was 1.04...
I cast a package of US-05 on top because I am not taking any chances.
I have a post from yesterday and the response I got and the others I have seen about this yeast;;; indicate it is a slow starter.
I brewed two batches and used Nottingham on the other and it was going strong at 24 hours....
I had never used eaither US-05 or bry-97 and just wanted to try them... my next batch of the same beer I will try just US-05
