I think this will be a fast fermentation.
I didn't want to create a new threat, but I am not happy with the WLP023 I've gotten from my supplier. The first vial was very, very sour, and I had no activity on the stir plate. I ditched it and used a jar of 001 that I had in the refrigerator.
Hopeful for this vial, I made the starter, and pitched in about 24 hours ago. No activity. I'm willing to give it another 24 hours, but there's just no life to it. I've had other yeasts that have gone crazy...saison, california, kolsch, but this one just seems dead.
