I have been brewing for about a year now, exclusively ales. I just brewed my first lager. I used a recipe from Northern Brewer for a Czech Pilsner. I did a 10 gallons batch in two 5-gallon buckets and pitched the yeast roughly 3 days ago. I used the Liquid Yeast option Omega Yeast Pilser. it's been three days, I decided to take a look under the lids to see how it was going since this is my first lager and there seems to be zero activity. No foam, nothing on the top. Looks just like a vat of pre-pitched brew like when I put it in the bucket. It's been in the brew fridge now for three days on roughly 43-45 degrees. A tiny bit colder than it should I suppose, but shouldn't I see some activity by now? I have raised the temperature of the fridge to see if that helps, but I'm worried now that I have ten gallons of beer that is not going to ferment.
