ok, so i know the air lock bubbling away isn't the only sign of active fermentation, but given the new variables (for me at least), i'm posting this anyway..
I brewed a Belgian quad (AHS Belgian Quad extract kit) last night, pitched with with Whitelabs Trapist Ale Yeast (the suggested liquid yeast for this given brew). This is my first big beer (1.090-1.100 on my hydrometer test last night), and my first use of liquid yeast.
On all my other brews i've used dry yeast, and have seen varied time until air lock action, but i was under the impression that with such a high gravity beer, and a quicker starting liquid yeast (right?) that fermentation would come out the gates blazing.
I'm just a little concerned since this brew has much more invested in it that normal brews for me. I think i'm probably over reacting, but figured a second opinion wouldn't hurt.
FWIW, this is my 5th batch. Had several with slow starts, but just didnt expect it on this one.
