Dumb question, I know, but I'm gonna ask it anyway.
First though, I brewed my 3rd batch of beer Friday night and, without making a starter, pitched my liquid yeast when the wort MAY have been too hot. Now, almost 3 days later, I see no signs of fermentation. I didn't take my first reading until 12 hours after pitching, and THAT reading is identical to today's reading. (1.030 and they were taken 48 hours apart.)
I cannot get more of the same liquid yeast until tomorrow evening, and by that time the wort will be 4 days old.
Then there's the possibly that I still have to wait 24-72 hrs after pitching for this second non-started liquid yeast to start rocking on.
Here's my question: Can I use an extra packet of Red Star Pasteur Champagne I had stowed in the fridge? As in use it NOW. I expect the answer to be "no", but I had to ask.
Thanks in advance.
