I brewed yesterday, the beer is okay for now in a 44 degree fridge. I pitched the yeast in the starter last night and now it is just sludge on the bottom of the container, in spite of having been shaken a couple of times. I'm thinking it is dead and planning on staying that way.
I appreciate the suggestion of the s189, but I have none in stock, it's a 250 mile round trip to the nearest LHBS and I intend to get the ball rolling today. Besides, I've had enough windshield time lately.
