Default Diagnose

2nd batch - A light Amber color American Ale

No signs of fermentation after about 30 hours. This pic is close to 48 hours. And it looks like a white mold to me. What are your thoughts, is it infected, should I pitch more yeast?

That's the start of krauzen building...remember fermetnation may take up to 72 hours to start....looks like it's starting to me....

That little foaming ring is the fizzy start of a yeast house....

Mold after 2 days, not likely.

Liquid or dry yeast? what strain? Temp? Give some details here.

Looks normal to me. I'm guessing this wasn't liquid yeast with a starter.

Ok details. I posted earlier about this...My girlfriend was trying to help me bla bla bla, long story short I wasn't paying attentions and she rehydrated the yeast when it was prob. 90f to 100f. I was nervous it killed it off.

I ended up pitching the dry yeast "Safal US-05" at around 60f. My first batch ever took off in probably 8 hours, so when this showed nothing for the basically 30 hours I was worried. Then it looked like mold to me, at about 48 hours. Still a noob, just different because the first kreson just launched off and never showed anything resembling a mold at first.

I had read the post on it could take up to 72 hours, but with the cirumstances of the rehydration, I was a little more worried.
