I just made it late last night and I don't really see any activity at all yet.
Activated a smack pack right after supper. It was pretty fresh (From late March of this year) Once I saw that it was swelling pretty good I started working on my starter.
I made a small wort and the gravity was 1.039. I sanitized everything as I went. I boiled the wort for 10 minutes and let it cool to room temperature for about an hour or so in the glass jar I'm using.
Then I wiped the outside of the smack pack with sanitizer solution, set it on the table, and did the same with my scissors before cutting the pack open and pouring the contents in to the jar with the wort.
It's been sitting for about 7 hours now and I don't see much (any) activity, but I don't really know if I should yet or not...
I don't have any real reason to suspect a problem but thought maybe somebody might know some things to watch out for. Just trying to collect as much information as possible.
