Default i forgot to dissolve the sugars with the hot water

Hi
I forgot to add the spray malt and sugar to my Cooper's IPA kit until I had already topped up the barrel to 20 litres. I added the sugars and stirred well before adding the yeast...I covered it and set the airlock....no action in the airlock yet (6hrs ago) Have I spoiled the batch?

Any help appreciated

U may have contaminated you Brew if the sugar was, but this usually does not happen.

everything will okay. you should start to see something in 24-48 hours, sometimes longer sometimes less but that usually how long until you see active yeast.

Yeah, I had to wait around 30 hours before I really started to see a lot of activity in my first batch (which I just bottled a couple days ago!) and then it happily bubbled away for around 2 weeks before it settled down.

Don't worry about it :-)

It's bubbling away nicely.
