Getting ready to brew a batch of the Elevenses and I see the following in the recipe:
A FEW DAYS BEFORE BREWING DAY
- Remove the liquid Wyeast pack from the refrigerator,
and “smack” as shown on the back of the yeast package.
Leave it in a warm place (70–80° F) to incubate until the
pack begins to inflate. Allow at least 3 hours for inflation;
some packs may take up to several days to show inflation.
Normally I have been taking the yeast out and warming at room temp for about 4-6 hours and haven’t had any issues. A few days seems excessive?
