So did a Dark Ale last night and after my boil and adding my preboiled and partially cooled water my temp was still sittling at 30+, I sealed up the FV and dumped it in my fridge hoping it would get down to temp quickly. I set an alarm and got up at just after midnight to pitch my yeast (my thermometer isnt very accurate so but I am pretty sure it was under 30C). This morning there seems to be no activity (krausen or otherwise). Temp is still around the 20C mark - aiming for 16C.
- Did I pitch the yeast (US-05 rehydrated) at too high a temp?
- Am I jumping the gun and should be waiting this tonight before I stress?
- Did the yeast sit too long after rehydrating (approx 2 hours on kitchen bench, covered with sanitised GladWrap)
