Normal gravity beers don't really need it. The yeast is done and is slowly dropping out of solution. This process can be sped up by using geletin. LINK

Both using primary only and primary/clearing vessal are acceptable in homebrewing. I'm in the primary only camp.

EDIT to say I primary only because

1)I've not noticed a difference between the two processes

2)I view secondary as an unnecessary step and I'm too fng lazy to worry about it.

Just to add another nugget of info to this one...

My stout that started at ~.01054, and took two weeks of me not seeing a bubble to get to .01021, was moved to a room that was a few degrees warmer (65-67 vs 61-63) and over the last few days went from .01021 to
.01017.

So..can't bottle, which is a bummer, but certainly better than bottling bombs after two weeks in primary.

It has been 30+ hours since I brewed my first batch. There has been no sign of fermentation. I did not stir in the yeast. Is that a problem?

dry yeast or liquid yeast, what was the predicted OG? if liquid yeast, what was the manufacture date on the package?

In addition to these questions, what is the current temp of the liquid? If the solution is too cold, the yeast may remain dormant or be a bit sluggish.

Stirring the yeast isn't necessary. Given the right environment, they know what to do. No worries there.

Also, how do you know there isn't fermentation?

Dry yeast. I am probably just being paranoid. I haven't checked the krausen yet, so I will do that tonight. Does it hurt the beer this early in the process if I open the bucket?

Nah dude, wash your hands well and open it up. You want to keep everything as sanitary as possible.

I'd bet you've got active fermentation going but the bucket did not seal. This would allow the co2 to escape and the airlock to remain silent.

This is what under the lid looks like. This was taken almost exactly 48 hours after I added the yeast. Does that right? O do I need to do something to it?
