Default Just pitched my first AG Batch...

I am very satisfied with how it all went. I brewed it alone and the whole process took about 6 hours. I am however a bit concerned it has been 14 hours and I have no fermentation happening, should I be concerned?

Nice work, and welcome to the AG club! I wouldn't worry about your fermentation taking off slowly...give it up to 36 hours. As long as you didn't pitch the yeast at over 100F, they should be fine. Sometimes yeast just take a while to get going, but rest assured they are doing their job!

Your fermentation is no different whether you pitched your yeast on an all grain batch or an extract, wort is wort...meaning that fermentation can STILL take up to 72 hours to start....

Great thanks, thats reassuring. Another question, I forgot in my fevered frenzy last night to take a hydrometer reading before pitching, is it to late?

It's never too late to check the SG! If fermentation is starting, it might not be exactly what it was when you pitched the yeast, but if it hasn't, you'll know your OG and be able to calculate your efficiency!

Thanks Yooper. Took SG at 1.06, which is 80% efficiency, not too bad. I am excited and yet still nervous about fermentation as it hasn't started yet after 24 hours.

What yeast did you pitch and how? Dry, hydrated, liquid, starter?
