Hi it was 9:30pm I was tired, didnt have any ice or coil so I was cooling wort inside the carboy rinsing tap water on the outside of carboy.,It wasnt super hot, I could touch it with my forehand and feel a little hot but not burning so I got tired and add a wyeast german ale inside the carboy. I noticed a few bubbles when it went inside the wort. Now im,super scared. Did I kill the yeast? It has been 30 hours should I add more yeast?? Somebody help!!!

Is there activity now, anything visible, did you take a gravity reading?

Ok first thing...never add yeast to warm wort...it is far better to wait longer if needed than pitch yeast into hot wort.

Signs of fermentation can take up to 36 hrs to be noticeable...If you have a pack of dry yeast go ahead and add it to the fermenter.
