All seems to be good now. It took a good 14-15 hours to show 'visible' signs. And now its been bubbling away happily. I did rehydrate the yeast before pitching. Aerated the wort first stirring with a paddle and then closing it up and swirling the fermenter around. However, I pitched at about 75-76 because I couldn't get it lower and dint want it to just sit there too long without pitching. After that it came down to 67 and I've managed to keep it there until now.
