Is this the same brew as you mentioned in another thread? If it is then I think the issue was that the airlock wasn't sealing, in which case my advice would be to not worry.

If it's a new batch I would repitch if there is no sign of krausen within 12 hours. A properly aerated wort with a healthy yeast population pitched into it should be going feverishly within 12 hours.

Ummmm i have killed a few yeasts in my day

Also newbies ringing up at the shop re airlock not bubbling turn out to have killed the yeast. . .all this seems to show that in a well sanitised fermenter a wort will keep for a few days, plenty of time to buy another yeast.

Always, courage! Beer is very forgiving, buy another bloody yeast, pitch away and very likely a great beer will result

after having a few yeasts fail on me, I've been starting the yeast in a cup of water, and if I don't have a capuccino after waiting a while, I won't pitch.
