BTW, fermentation can take up to 72 hours to start. Did you make a starter? Did you aerate the wort well? These things also contribute to the tart of fermentation. If you have not seen activity after 72 hours then you re-pitch.
Thanks a lot. That makes me feel better. The directions told me to let it sit out for 3-6 hrs, but I should have made one.
So if it doesn't work, just go buy some more yeasts?
