I made a starter on Saturday from a beer I made that finished at 1.062. Is this normal after 2 days? Not much kreusan (sp) and not a lot of yeast in the bottom. It was from a Pac Man Wyeast smack pack.
2nd question - I rehydrated this yeast about 30 minutes before pitching (same beer as mentioned above). Today there is still no activity in the primary. I added another packet just now. I noticed the date. I have had these for about a year. Does the date indicate best to use by 6/2010?
