So about four days ago i started a milk stout (brewers best kit). Everything went great until i realized today that my airlock had not started bubbling! It came with some notty and i hydrated it just like the directions said and then pitched it at around 70-74. I also put some yeast nutrient in...
I had some s-04 i had washed and saved as an experiment and in a panic warmed it and threw it in without a starter! I know its not what you are supposed to do but I was worried about possible infections if i didn't get something going.
My question is has anyone else pitched washed yeast without a starter, and how did it work for ya? Also have your kits came with bad yeast before?
A guy at work asks what I am doing over the weekend. "Not much." I say, "Might brew some beer." "Wow!" Says the guy, "You ever get caught?" - sendkyleanemail
