I brewed a 1.082 OG double IPA last night, but only pitched a single vial of White Labs WLP001. As I was waiting for fermentation to begin, I took the opportunity to actually read the label of the vial, which states that I should have made a starter for any OG over 1.070. Oops...
There is activity this morning as it sits at about 70 degrees, which is good, but I'm shooting for a FG of 1.016-1.018. That's a lot of work for that one little vial to do. Would it even help to pitch more yeast at this point (18 hours after the first pitch)? Should I make a starter now and pitch once that's ready?
I'm not too worried because at least something is happening...but I don't want a syrupy sweet IPA if I can prevent it.
