I have used this yeast for years, both pro and home brew and have always gotten consistent results. A couple of things you might consider: Pitch at or near the temp you want to ferment. So if you are planning to ferment at 50 degrees pitch at 48-52. By pitching yeast and dropping the temp you are sending mixed signals to the yeast. rapidly dropping temps can cause yeast to stall and lag. Also, you might try rehydrating the yeast in preboiled water (@ 70ish degrees).
regardless, under 48 hour lag is nothing to really worry about. Sounds like it is taking off finally and will be chugging away soon.
