I made my first attempt at the Chinook IPA last weekend - and I have learned 2 lessons already.
First, I forgot to shake it before adding the yeast. Lesson #1.
It looks like it’s foaming up some in the bubbler - it’s not super active, but I’m hoping it’s OK in spite of that.
Second, the temperature in the room where it’s brewing is <65F (not sure exactly how much less than that - my thermometer is kinda sketchy - I’ll get a better one before the next batch).
So I don’t know if the temperature is making it less active or if it’s the lack of shaking or if it’s all good and I’m just worrying too much about it.
