Sorry, I’m pretty much a newbie… I’m brewing my 3rd brewing project currently (NB’s Smashing Pumpkin). Followed the instructions to a T (though I included the optional portion of using 6-row and pumpkin beforehand by using the brew in a bag method). My liquid Wyeast bag inflated - the Smashing Pumpkin instructions said to take it out of the fridge and let it do its thing a day beforehand. I aerated the wort, and pitched at the instructed 78*.
However, that was around 11pm last night… it’s now 8am, and there is no sign of fermentation whatsoever. The airlock hasn’t budged… there’s no krausen at all…
Do I have a problem? Do I need to rush-order a new yeast packet? Am I totally boned? Or should I just chill, let it do its thing, and hope for the best?
