How long have you had it go before it started fermenting where you could see it?

Its been a few days and in the past I have been getting bubbling by now......

I've had wild yeast batches take as long as a week, although usually its more like 1-3 days. Just make sure you keep an eye on it once it gets going. they can ferment out fast

The past few have taken off in a day or so.
This one was going yesterday afternoon (got the cider Sunday)

Sitting in a nice cool 60 degree basement
