I just tried liquid yeast in one of my 5 gallon extract batches. This is the first time that I have ever used liquid instead of dry. I went back and forth on making a yeast starter, and I settled on just pitching the yeast directly into the wort without a starter. After about 12 hours I noticed pretty active bubbling in my airlock. Now, it’s been 48 hours and it is still bubbling away. Is this confirmation that my yeast is “active?” Or, should I still be concerned about not using a starter?
Any input is appreciated!
