Not Fermenting
« on: June 28, 2008, 06:56:37 AM »
I have just put in a bitter (Hambleton Bard) used beer enhancer and done all the usual preparation, but after 12 hours still not fermenting.
Can you help?

  I would give it some more time.  In extreme cases, it has taken as long as 48 hours for some of my batches to build up a good head of steam.  Some strains get started much slower than others.

  Hopefully you used a starter?
