You're probably fine. Just taking some time for the yeast population to grow. Oxygenation, temperature, gravity, viability and other things will have an impact on lag time.

Yes. Outside of buying more yeast that's probably the best option. They're gonna throw a lot of precursor while they get up to population so I would include a diacetyl rest on down the line.

Excuse my misunderstanding. Are you trying find out if your bottle-filling practice will allow you to avoid the typical shelf life problems at warmer temps?

The 1332 has more more of an English profile in my experience. Fruity, flocculant and leaves a residual sweetness. The 1272 is much cleaner, American and much more attenuative.
