Reusing yeast - the starter method

However, I never (even when pitching packs directly into the wort) had action after 2-3 hours. Most of my beers start showing active fermentation after 18-24 hours or so.
I would never stress unless I didn't see any action after 48 hours.

A few times I have pitched and put the FV in the fridge not long before bed - next moring there's 7 - 8 cms of Kraussen on top. If I hadn't read some of the experiences on here I'd be freaking out at 18 hours. 😄

Try pitching on a yeast cake. Off to the races within 2hrs most times.

Yeah that is understandable though, as you are hugely over pitching. Something I have never done, I have harvested yeast but never dumped straight onto the cake.

Best way to make a lager. Quick. Clean and crisp.
