Default wort to cold??

I finished my first home-brew in 25 years and have been waiting for some type of activity... My only concern is that I might have cooled the wort too much. The carboy wasn't warm when i pitched the yeast. Can I add yeast in a day or two or should I wait it out some....
Thanks!

No do not worry. Pitching cold is not a bad idea at all and I do it every time. Now pitching hot is a very bad thing

Not even long enough sometimes to get through reproductive phase. Wait at least another day. I've had starter yeasts take 24-30 hours to get to visibly fermenting phase.

I've had lager yeasts that took as long as 4 days before visible signs of fermentation started.

9 hours? I prescribe a little patience! You can't rush beer. It's ready when it's ready. Leave this one in primary for 2-3 weeks before you even think about bottling it, and you'll be rewarded with better beer!!

See this sticky - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/ferm...e-signs-43635/

Can you tell us what temperature you're talking about? If not, the next thing on your brew shopping list should be a decent thermometer.

65-66*F is a great temp at which to pitch ale yeast. I wouldn't think that the carboy would feel "warm" to you at 65*.
