Well it has been 48 hrs and still no bubbling..I think something may start soon because the piece inside airlock appears to be getting pushed up and If I push down very lightly on the cover it forces gas out of the airlock.
I do not want to open the cover because I do not want to ruin my batch.
Would this ruin the batch?
When people talk about a starter for the yeast...what are they talking about?
Could I have just thrown the packet of yeast in the pail?
What is the proper way to pitch the yeast?
Should I shake the pail?
