JZ's Berliner Wiesse Lag Phase

Sun Jan 20, 2013 4:59 pm

Brewed Brewing Classic Styles recipe yesterday. No signs of activity after 30 hours. I think this is normal as this beer takes time to age & ferment. Does anyone have any experience with this style and if the lag phase can be this long?

The wort was oxygenated and then pitched with a vial each of WLP011 & WLP677. Is at 68 degrees right now.

How do you know there is no activity? Do you have an airlock thats not bubbling? Time it for a full minute. How confident are you in the quality of the WLP011? Was the yeast brought to the same temp as the wort before pitching, big temp changes can shock the yeast.
