I pitched mine with Nottingham on Friday, since that was all the "spare" yeast I had, and I didnt really feel like driving 20 miles to the LHBS just for a yeast run. So far it has been slow to start. There is definitely some activity, the lid on the bucket kind swells after 2-3 hours, but there has not been any airlock activity. The airlock is floting, so I have a feeling that it is bubbling, just at a significantly slow rate. It hasnt been very long, so I am going to stick it out and see what happens. At what point should I consider repitching, or is there anything I can do to help it along? I am kind of thinking maybe make up a warm sugar/water solution, take a sample from the batch, and create a second "starter" assuming that the sample has enough viable yeast, of course. Good learning experience, I suppose.

I have a few more minutes now, so i will elaborate:

Lemonade is VERY hard on yeast. It is one of the toughest construction jobs your yeast will face all season. They will catch up, they are just in shock right now. Wait 4 days, if on the fourth night they haven't improved at all (base this on gravity readings) then make a starter with lots of food and put it under airlock. Let it really get going, and then pitch it.
