what do you ferment in? ie: was it a carboy where you could have seen if there was krausen and such or a bucket where you can't? could be that it's already done and you just didn't have a seal. only way to know for sure is to pull a gravity sample.
yeah, didn't want to start grabbing a gravity sample if it was fermenting and it wasn't visible via the airlock.
fermenting in a carboy. swore i saw a mini krauzen form, but yeah, zero, i mean ZERO airlock movement. nary a foamy bubble.
it's at the point where i think i'll do a gravity reading. even a refractometer reading to show ANY movement will make me happy. and if it's a dud, i may have to chuck.
ugg..me and my weird yeasts. sometimes i wish i'd just stick to wlp001.
