What went wrong? Was this supposed to happen? Should I throw it out? What do I do now?

Yeast Starter - No Krausen

Postby shaggyt » Tue Jul 22, 2008 10:32 am

Greetings. I'm a new homebrewer and first time post-er...problem is this...

I'm preparing for my second batch to brew, estimated OG of >1.070...as such, I created a yeast starter using: White Labs Cal V Ale yeast + 1 cup Amber DME (smaller of the DME packages I'll be using in the batch) + 1 quart h2o (pre-boiled measurement). This is currently in my pantry @ approx. 72-74 F w/airlock and bubbling, going on day 2.

All the material I've consulted states I should have Krausen within this timeframe. Couple of questions have risen because no Krausen is present:

1. Is this starter working? Will it work for my brew?

2. Is the Krausen necessary to create a potent starter?

I've aerated through periodic swirling as directed until Krausen forms, but I'm beginning to doubt that it's going to happen. The liquid occupies only about 1.5 inches in a one gallon glass container (growler)...is this too small of an amount for the yeast pitched?

Looking for guidance...thanks.

Well, I'd say if you airlock is bubbling, then it's good to go.
But I'm just guessing. I've never used a yeast starter.

I always use White Labs yeast and just pitch it into the fermeter as is. It always works fine with no problems at all.

About a month ago, I pitched it in a brew with an OG of 1.086 and it fermented as normal. So, I've had no need to bother with a starter.

What was your total fermentation time with that high OG and 1 vile of yeast?
I'd like to avoid the starter all together, but conventional wisdom suaded me otherwise.
