So I smacked my Wyeast pack several hours before I planned on using it, about 5hrs. When I went to check on it 5hrs later it hadn't inflated at all. I checked to make sure that I did break the thing inside the pack and it seemed that I did.
So I grabbed my starter flask and tossed the inactive yeast in it and added some DME. 24 hours later the yeast is hardly bubling and its has thinly formed at the bottem of the flask.
My question is, is the yeast still good? how long should I let it go in the starter? I want to pitch the yeast when its at its strongest.
