I've got a situation with wyeast 2206 bavarian lager. I brewed a bock over the weekend and realized that after 72hrs at room temp, that I may have needed to pitch a starter. I dumped that beer and bought new ingredients and a new pack of 2206 and smacked it 36 hrs ago. I made the starter today and when I looked at the pack, it had swelled a little but not much. Still no activity on the airlock, which im not too worried about yet. I made an ale started off the same wort and its going nuts! I'm just curious if I got a bad batch of yeast. They all had the same mfg date of 09June10.
To yalls knowledge, is 2206 a slow starter? Has anyone else had issues with 2206?
