Brewed the extract version on Saturday. I was lazy and didn't make a starter. Pitched a vial of WLP013 (London Ale) straight into the bucket. Once it got going, it really took off. I had to change the airlock and it was seeping out of the side of the fermenting bucket.

My new year's resolution is to make more yeast starters. I might pull the trigger on a stir plate. I'm confident that this one is still going to be a fine, tasty beverage though.

Stir plate is helpful but is also a lot of fun. You basically increase your brew day activities by a day or two, plus it's all :science: and stuff.

Since switching to dry yeast I've skipped on the starters also I brew outside so sometimes the weather calls an audible for me and tells me not to brew LOL.

So, I smacked my wyeast Denny's Fav in preparation for the brew night. Just realized I don't have a yeast nutrient. Wouldn't the Wyeast nutrient be enough, or am I screwed?

I don't think so - a yeast nutrient isn't mandatory. I've never used one.

I think wyeast has nutrient already in the smack pack. Smack it let it sit at room temp while you are brewing it will swell open it up and pitch to your wort. Easy as pie !!!

Were you planning on using 10 oz on 5 gallons? The vanilla sounds like a wonderful idea.

I racked onto the 10 ounces of nibs about a week ago. (5 gallon batch) I will be racking this into a Cornelius keg on Sunday. Can't wait to start pouring this off the tap!

Brewed the extract version yesterday. Worried because my OG was only 1.040. I'm hoping my hydrometer was screwed up. Anyway, here's a little video of the active fermentation after about 24 hours.

If you put in the correct amount of extract, the only thing you could have done to affect OG was put in to much water. If you have the right amount of wort in you carboy and used the right amount of extract, in all likelihood, you're beer is fine and something was wrong with you hydrometer or sample.
