I pitched an activator of Wyeast 3278 Lambic Blend into a 2.5 gallon batch last night. I haven't seen any activity yet, but am not worried and am waiting the standard 72 hours, etc.
However, I am curious about long-term viability of the bugs in the blend, apart from the saccharomyces. I know from these forums that they're much slower-acting than saccharomyces; would one activator pack have pitched enough of them for them to wake up and start eating down the line, assuming for the sake of argument that I ended up having to pitch some dry yeast or something after the 72 hours possible lag time is up? Or in that case would there be a chance I'd want to repitch the bugs, too?
