I brewed a 5 gal batch of an Irish Red Ale (AG) yesterday, breaking in the new single tier rig I built. The yeast I requested (Wyeast Activator Pack of American Ale 1056) was left out of the order. I have a vial of White Labs California Ale 001 in the fridge from a previously screwed up order. I pitched the 001 and set the batch aside to ferment. After 14 hrs, there is still no evidence of active fermentation. I know the smack pack of 1056 is on the way, it should be here this afternoon. If by that time, i have no activity.....would it be okay to pitch the 1056 on top of the 001?
