It sure takes all the worry out of it. I pitched my starter yesterday afternoon late, and this morning the airlock is bubbling away.

Just for grins and giggles...

Wyeast smack packs can take anywhere from 1 to 72 hours for lag time before the signs of active fermentation start showing. I know, I know, longer lag times can (but don't have) to be bad, but that's life with a smack pack. Don't give up on it just yet.

HAH! Update. I just pitched the starter and threw in some energizer and nutrients with it. When I popped the lid... low and behold.... a big thick layer of foam It started on it's own. I pitched the stuff anyways, but skipped airation.

hehe... and now as i sit her typing and looking at the bucket, the airlock has all of a sudden gone crazy. Kinda strange. wasn't the move. As wasn't doing that before I popped hte lid to throw the stuff. I woudln't think the extra yeast and nutrients would work that quick. Maybe tossing the nutrients and yeast into it, stirred it up more then the move and released some pent up co2. interesting.

Sounds like the first batch woke up.

Too bad you pitched the second yeast...you could have brewed another batch and used it there.

Nah, I'm happy with pitching it. I didn't want to use trappist yeast for my next batch. Have ingrediants for a bitter, and a packet of muton's yeast for it. I'll start it probably early next week. I need a beer that's not gonna need to be aged for a while in bottle. Lol.

well... just faced another delema. Checked on the batch again and it go so active as to overflow the 7 1/2 g bucket. I had to reach my hand into the brew to retrieve the gormet that got pushed through when installing hte clean airlock. Grrr. Oh well. I dunked my hands in bleach solution before doing so. I figure all is good now. Lol. Took a while, but certainly took off when it decided too.

My LHBS always has free growler bottles. I might get one next time I'm there and make some starters from now on.
