Did you make sure to mix the two? It seems to me you didn't get the two mixed well. This causes the problem with the yeast starting up.

I did, I made sure to mix it well and gave it a good stir to aerate

Good to know, I plan to take a reading Sunday, i'm afraid to disturb it right now. Sunday will be day 7 in the primary.

Buckets very often don't seal well.

I use US-05 for almost every batch I do and generally see activity in 24hrs (high grav or low grav). If you only use one pack in 5 gal, it may be slower getting started.

It's probably the bucket. RDWHAHB! You'll still get beer.

Well after letting it sit a few more days while I was out of town I checked it on it. Hydrometer reading was 1.014 and it looked pretty clean, checked it again last night and was still at 1.014 so racked it to the secondary. After racking and plugging in the airlock it started bubbling. I'm getting a bubble about every 90 seconds or so. Plan to leave it here for 7-10 days before bottling. Tasted my hydrometer sample and it tasted very good, looking forward to this one.

Nice, that's decent attenuation for an extract brew I would say.

The problem being a slow start or stalled fermentation? What's remedy, pitching another packet?

Looks like the issue was lack of patients by a noob , I just let it sit 3 more days while I was out of town. When I returned and checked it looked good. My lesson learned was to not pay attention to the lack of activity in the airlock. Next batch will be done in a better bottle so i can see what's going on to keep my curiosity at bay. I didn't pitch another packet, just let it go.

found this post after I currently have a batch of graff cider fermenting using us-05. Pitched yeast saturday and got bubbles on sunday night and same monday morning. Came back this afternoon to find no bubbles what-so-ever. this is quite interesting as i fully expected based on other brewers of this recipe having yeast take off. I swirled the bucket some to see if I could get it to take off again but i wont pop the top until another week to take a hydro reading. still early

Default Day 5 Update

Ugh, still no more activity after the brief activity sunday night into monday. I'm tempted to pop the top and check gravity, should I or wait a couple more days?

Temp has been 72 deg F.
