How long has it been and what temperature did you pitch the yeast at?

It can take 24hrs or more to see any activity. Also, 80f is too warm. Try to pitch below 70f

Wow, pitched an hour ago and already worried about it? Patience is the most important ingredient in great beer. Look up Palmer's "How To Brew", excellent book and a must for new brewers.

Welcome to the forum Crow. What area you from? People on this forum are extremely generous and helpful, and might even be willing to let you borrow "How To Brew". I know I would! Good Luck!

Update? Has it started yet? What kind of brew is it and what temps are you fermenting at?
