repitch after 72 hours of no activity???

Post by Adrian Code » Tue, 02 Apr 1996 04:00:00



my brown ale of high og 1.091 (see above post) has not shown much sign
of active fermentation since I pitched the Wyeast american ale 72 hours
ago (1056??).  

Should I repitch, or wait?

No, I have not taken another gravity reading yet to see if I simply
slept through volcanic fermentation.

thanks

You probably blew up all your yeast when you dumped them into that high
gravity wort - what size of a starter did you make?  If it was less than a
quart, you're probably hosed.  Either way, if it's been this long with no
activity, I'd get some dry yeast, rehydrate it and pitch it.
