Default question about pitching yeast

Once I set my fridge up for controlled ferment temp,after pitching yeast should I wait until the fermentation starts? or just put the pail rite into the fridge....will the constant 60 degree temp hinder the start of fermentation?

Are you making an ale or a lager? What kind of yeast are you using?

Make sure you stay within the yeast's temp range. But yeah,just pitch the yeast,seal,& set up a blow off or airlock. Put it in the temp controlled fridge.

Yes.The manufacturers have ranges listed for each yeast's comfort zone. The notty yeast's temp range is shown to be 57-70F,but will tolerate 54F. Also said to have a high alcohol tolerance.
