I do BIAB, and I generally pitch my yeast at the end of the brew session like most do when the wort has cooled after 20 min of chilling, and I know that some brewers will let the wort sit overnight in a heavy duty plastic container & pitch the next day.
On a previous brew session, I cooled with my immersion chiller as I usually do, and I let the wort just sit overnight in the bucket without pitching the yeast.
The next day, I transfered/racked the wort(off the excess trub) into another bucket, aerated & then pitched. Was I ok for doing that? I figure the principle is the same as letting it cool overnight, but does it matter if its pre-cooled & sitting at pitching temp. overnight? I didn't much care for how it turned out, and I'm attributing it to the yeast.(WLP400) But could I have added more insult to my injury by not pitching my yeast from the get-go?
