I transferred the wort to secondary, pitched my 1 pound of DME and now i'm waiting for signs of an active fermentation. So far it has been about 36 hours and no activity. if after 48 hours and no signs of fermentation should I pitch more yeast or wait longer?
Also, I've got an awesome little fermentation chamber keeping a steady 70 degrees.
Certainly should be no need to add more yeast.
There probably has been activity but with such a small amount of dme for so many yeast you would likely see little sign.
Did you take a SG reading after adding DME? If so what is it now?
I would say it is well finished with the addition.
