I've never had a long lag time with this yeast. But I always pitch a big active starter. No chilling and decanting. I pitch the starter at high krausen and at fermentation temps.

That's why. I decant almost every starter.

I wouldn't even start to worry until you get to the 72 hour mark. What temp do you have it at?

Slowly lower that to 68-70 for 2 days or so, and then let it warm up on its own. 75 is a little warm to start with that yeast. IMO the best flavor come from starting at 68 and ending at 78.
