Status update: it's about 13hrs later and I'm getting about 3 bubbles per SECOND from the one way valve! Next time I'm going to primary this stuff in my glass carboy to watch! I'm just going to leave it and hopefully it turns out well.
I started with an activator pack and smacked it about 20hrs before pitching. It was from November so by the time I pitched it I had actually placed the pouch in a ziplock bag in case it exploded. I had to cut it open because the bag was too swolen to get it to tear, I had no idea how much byproducts the yeast puts off!! This hobby is a whole lot more fun than I imagined!
