Hi all

I am on about my 10th batch of lager, i use the kits, and i am trying a john bulls lager now and i made it about 18 hours ago and there is hardly no air lock activity, i usually make the kits about 6pm and when i get up the next day its bubbling away nicely, however this one is bubbling about once every 2 minutes.

It is colder now here in the uk, so will this slow it down or does it sound like its simply not going to start?

Many thanks for your help

Chris

Much like autos and women, yeast take longer to get started when it's cold...relax and have a homebrew. You're fine.
