So, I brewed a special bitter that I would love to put on cask, but it will simply be bottle conditioned, as I have no cask. This was my first time making a yeast starter, which I did 24 hours in advance before pitching and in the 1L volume.
Now, I’ve been reading all about this yeast, trying to find answers, and I know that airlock bubbling and krausen presence are never the right way to gauge your ferment. However, it seems to early for me to take another hydrometer reading as I’ve only taken my OG less than 12 hours ago. I also know that you may have violent and loud fermentation’s, and others that almost seem as if nothing is happening at all. Being new to the liquid yeast starter process I am slightly worried that I may have screwed it up somehow, but it seemed as if it went perfectly.
All in all, I guess I’m just throwing this out there to see if anyone else has had any experience with the 1469, and if so, have you not seen any action for the first 24-48 hours, and if it will most likely take off by 72 hours? I do have a pack of US04 floating around in my fridge that I can pitch if I get no change after taking another hydro reading, but I definitely don’t want to jump the gun, since so much of what I have read is people saying how great this yeast is and what great flavors it develops.
