I've brewed a few batches already, but have a question based on a potential mistake i made last night.
I brewed a Belgian Wit, smelled yummy, but while i was cooling my wort in my bathtub ice bath i realized i had forgotten to remove my liquid yeast from the fridge. so i pulled it out, combined my cooled wort with drinking water to get the level up around 5 gallons, and waited about an hour before pitching the yeast. was supposed to wait 3 hours as the 'test tube' of yeast stated. was that a huge mistake? i still aerated the wort, shook the bucket etc. as of now i have no airlock activity, but its only been about 14 hours since pitching. did i make a big mistake? i should have just waited it out. thanks to all
