No signs of fermentation

I used a wyeast for the first time, it has been 32 hours and there still is no sign of fermentation going on. It is a 5gal batch of honey porter.

Give it more time. You can swirl your fermenter to keep the yeast suspended.

I’ll bet it isn’t Wyeast’s fault.

Don’t be concerned until 72 hours.

What is the date on the bag and did the bag inflate?

+1 and which strain?

the date was 1/2014 and yes it swelled, but when I checked it this morning it looks like the yeast went to the bottom, just need to know if this normal.

It was an Irish ale.

Do you have a store nearby. If so you could pick up a pack of dry yeast for standby. But I’m sure the original yeast will kick in.

The yeast production date was 1/2014!? Did you mean 2013?

All’s good it started doing it’s thing last night when I got home from work :smiley:
