I am a little uncertain if my fourth batch is going in the right direction. I have re pitched on a package of notty three successful times. This last time I noticed that there was some darker sediment in the carboy. So I decided to wash the yeast. I am using unfiltered juice. In doing so I put the yeast in a half gallon glass container, let set for 30 min and pitched the golden liquid. With the other repurchase, activity took off really quick, but I put it right on the cake.
At ten hours, there was no activity but a positive push on the airlock (just not bubbling).
At 22 hours, it is bubbling, albeit slow (not like the last few times).
I have no idea the yeast count I pitched so I am wondering if I way under pitched and if I should add a pack of notty or just let it go another day.
What are your thoughts?
