I have a glass carboy, so I can see what's happening. Hopefully it'll be bubbling when I get home. But I'll stop by LHBS to pick up some yeast tomorrow. Thanks for the help!

It's a good idea to pick up some more yeast. Then while you are waiting for the first brew to get going you can make another. They really rarely fail to take off but sometimes the wait can seem interminable.

Here is a good explanation of what is going on in your carboy and why you need to wait. http://www.brewgeeks.com/the-life-cycle-of-yeast.html

I rehydrate between 90-100 degress, let it sit for 15 minutes, swirl & pour it in.......

Ideal yeast re-hydration temp is 95-105 F...so if you were in that range, it should be good.

Just got home and checked the carboy. No action happening and no krousen. :-( temp says 64. Looks like I'm yeast shopping tomorrow. Major league bummed! Think I need a beer.

If you just did this batch yesterday 2/10. This can be perfectly normal.....I brewed yesterday as well, and mine isn't showing signs yet either, but by tomorrow (or tonight) the airlock is gonna bubble.........
