What was the longest you have waited for your yeast to take off after pitching?
I brewed on Saturday, and it was Tuesday night befor the yeast finally started to go. I had a 7 1/2 month old pouch of Wyeast activator, I only gave it 6 hours after smacking, I should have gave it three days and made a strarter, but I just went ahead and pitched it. It finally started fermentating, three days later!
All is well now though.
Anyone else have a story?
