I mixed up a 1 gallon batch of Edwort's Apfelwein yesterday. I pitched the yeast- Red Star Montrachet and a day later there is still no airlock activity. Did I do something wrong and if so how can I fix it?

Was it cold? What's your fermentation temp? It may take another 12 hours if it is too cold.

sometimes it will start right up, sometimes not, I've had a couple batches that took 36-48 hours for the yeast to multiply enough to get any airlock activity... RDWHAHB...
