Yeah, I think either way you'll be fine. Did you use liquid yeast or dry? Starter or no starter?

We're all noobs at some point! No, that's not a starter. A starter consists of basically making a small amount of wort, and pitching your yeast to raise the number of viable yeast cells... There's a little more to it than that, but do a quick search and you'll find plenty of info! Depending on the "best by" date of your Wyeast pack, it make be a really slow start. If you have to repitch, I would probably go with a dry yeast like Safale S-05. Others have used it with this recipe with good results.

Awesome thank you for that. I'll do the dry yeast if i have to repitch.

EDIT: If i do so, should i make a starter for it? Or just pitch it as is? First time using Dry yeast, i see mixed reviews haha

I've always had good result pitching it straight from the packet. Some will say you should rehydrate it first, directions are on the packet, but many don't rehydrate first. You won't need a starter for dry yeast, as there is a greater yeast cell count in a packet of dry yeast vs. a vial/pack of liquid yeast. So, rehydrate or don't, either way you'll make beer! I'll be surprised if you don't wake up tomorrow to find active fermentation, let me know how it all turns out!

haha you were right, i got home from work, checked it, nice layer of krausen on the top, and it looks like the OG dropped a bit. and i mean a very slight bit. Gonna let it hang out for a couple days before i even open it anymore, i'll watch for bubbling as well.

Think i safe to let it go the 7? or should i check in a couple days and see what the OG is say in a day or 2. Not sure the effects of me opening the lid everyday are gonna be, i just wanna make sure were fermenting, and make sure it goes well

Awesome! Any idea what the "best by" date was on the yeast you pitched? Yeah, opening the lid could potentially cause you some infection issues. I'd let it go for the 7 days, and check the SG. If it's dropped quite a bit, check it again in a day or so and see if it stays the same. If it does, you're good to go! If not, pitch some dry yeast. Even if you've got a stuck fermentation, you can pitch some dry yeast and you'll be fine.

I didnt get to check unfortunately. I'll open it up sunday, see what the SG is and go from there. if we got a drop, check monday and if all goes according to plan, rack onto the berries that night

Just dont get in a rush. Which is really hard to do with this beer. Primary for two weeks will hurt nothing! This should be a four week beer prior to bottling. Relax and let the yeast do their thing.
