Sure you can.I know this isn’t a random drunken thought, but I trust y’all and have a question that’s not worth a thread.
I just kicked off a 1.10 OG stout with Wyeast London 1028. I have used this yeast with this recipe several times. This time I picked up the liquid yeast from my LHBS and put it in the fridge when I got home. Not gonna lie, I waited like a month to do this stout. Busy/Lazy. When I finally got around to it, I made a proper starter, pitched just like always, and after 30 hrs I see 0 activity. No krausen, no bubbles from blow off tube, nothing. Like there was no yeast. I’ve made this recipe many times, and the yeast always kicks up like clockwork at 24 hours.
Let’s assume my yeast is bad... am I okay to just buy more yeast and pitch it after days??
It's kind of a no-brainer to me. With liquid, you spend twice as much, get less, have to ship cold, possibly wait on a smack pack, build a starter, add nutrient, oxygenate, and then have occasional sluggish results. I admit there are styles that you just need that specific yeast for or it doesn't quite seem right (Belgian Ardennes is hard to beat) but if there is a dry that will do the job well, I'm there. Sometimes I will build a starter with dry for the heck of it. Mostly to try and minimize the amount of yeast cap that builds up on my Tilt - dry poured on top tends to adhere to the Tilt asap - but I get airlock activity within 8 - 10 hrs every time I do.Thanks Snuffy. It's possible I was just impatient because it's been so consistent at 24 hrs before. I've got some action happening now, so I'm gonna chill and see what it looks like tomorrow.
There is something to be said for dry yeast! I have a red fermenting next the stout that was roaring after 12hrs.
Still like Slipknot (and Stone Sour for that matter) but yeah, whatever this new solo crap is is just bad.Any of y’all Slipknot fans? Allow me to ruin that for you forever. Corey Taylor... what happened? It’s like you took Kid Rock, did the impossible, and made it worse.
Didn't read the story. Name wasn't Jonah by any chance?Holy cow!
