I started a small batch yesterday using 100% apple juice, ingredients were apple juice concentrate, water and acsorbic acid. Used red star champagne yeast with nutrient. Did everything the same as my last batch but nothing is happening in my carboy, any thoughts?

What is the temperature of the must? How long has it been since you pitched the yeast?

I bet a little warmth and a another 12 hours and it'll be doing fine.

Yup, try giving it a swirl/stir to resuspend the yeast.

Just got home from work a bit ago, gave it a good swirl and set it in front of the heater. It was at 63 degrees when I got home, heater should get it up to 68 or so. We,ll see what happens tomorrow
