So I made cheeses vanilla caramel cream ale and I pitched 2 vials of white labs german ale with expired best before dates (11/20/09 and 11/18/09). The guy at the HB store told me if I pitched two vials I shouldnt have any problems. This was at 4 am Sunday morning. Dont worry, I didnt let it sit overnight, it was a late night brew session. Anyway, I checked this morning and all the yeast is resting on the bottom and there is no kraussen (sp.). should I wait? Or get more yeast? I cant remember if this is what is supposed to happen. Does the yeast settle before the fermentation??
this is my 4th batch, but I seem to still have some trouble.
