Fermentation

Unread postby nibber » Sun Sep 09, 2018 8:55 am

I brewed a Belgian blonde beer yesterday-thought i would try a different yeast so bought a White Labs pure pitch wlp530 liquid one,never used one before- i usually use dry Safbrew ones and mix it and fermentation always starts within 4-8 hours,however this one has no activity after nearly 24 hours-how long can it take? is it up to 72 hours ,it is approx 18 dec C where i keep the fermenter. :beer: :beerbang:

Have you got a spare saf in the fridge?

Beat the barjeebers out of it with a whisk to airate and raise the temp by 2c. That should start it.
Personally I would pitch a saf and get it going.

Good choice.

With everthing I have learnt and been taught. 2-3 days is too long for the yeast lag phase.

I have proved that long lag does affect taste.

12-24 hrs is what the suppliers say..

Mashy,
Do you keep your dry yeast sachets in the fridge then?
I personally don't due to the changes in temperature that occur (i.e. opening and closing the door etc) could form moisture in/on the packet :beerbang:

Sure do. Have a deficated fridge. Opening and closing isn't an issue. Have kept bulk packs for 3+ years.

I used to keep all my yeasts in a tupperware box in the door. Opening and closing the door didn't effect the yeasts because the box was always cold and it couldn't get warmed up in the time it was exposed to ambient temp.

Don't like the sound of a 'deficated' (sic) fridge, Monsieur Mashy! :shock: Is it not very good......to the point of being a bit sh*t?

Lol.

'Dedicated' was the word.
Artificial intelligence decided otherwise it seems.
