Ordered some things from NB, got two smack packs of yeast, one Trappist High Gravity, and one Belgian Abbey pack.
After smacking both, neither really showed any meaningful activity after almost 24 hours, so I pitched both into a starter. The Trappist HG smelled a little odd, not like any yeast I'm familiar with.
24 hours later, the Trappist still smells odd, and has no fizziness, while the Abbey is fizzing and smelling properly like yeast.
Is the Trappist HG just dead on arrival, and I can scrap it, or is it worth waiting another 24 hours or more for the starter to take off?
