If it swelled some, then there is some live yeast in there. I would say wait 24hrs, you should see activity. If nothing by 48 hours, you could hydrate a packet of yeast and pitch it in there.

Thanks Preston after 28 hrs it started working very slowly I am only on my tenth batch and never encountered this before needless to say at the price of ingredients it would be a shame to water the garden with it.

Check the date and make sure you do not have a outdated pack. It has happened to me and some of those strains are very touche. If it was the date, then weather it works or not take it back to the person you purchased it from and attempt to get a refund. They make enough on the yeast to make it right with you eather way.

+1 for take it back if it is out of date. Yeast can make up 1/3 the cost of your beer!
