It seemed like a high quality yeast that will do the job.

I used this yeast with a full grain Imperial stout. It's been 24 hours and zero activity from the yeast! Should I be worried?
Rick Hausauer on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I would be worried. I usually make a starter first and usually see activity in the starter and in the wort after pitching the starter within a few hours. If you are watching for bubbling in the airlock, it is possible that there is a small leak in the starter, stopper, or if you are fermenting in a bucket, there can easily be a leak between the bucket and the lid, so check these out.
If the smack-pack expanded after smacking, that would indicate that the yeast was alive and viable.
I have not observed that this yeast is noticeably slower to ferment than other yeasts.

Arrived dead
Although I have had great results with this yeast before, this packet arrived dead, so it never "started" in the packet or in the brewing bucket.

Very good yeast
I used this in a holiday beer and it attenuated vey aggressively. In fact, it blew off my airlock twice and I had to switch to a blow off tube. Full attenuation reached after about 4 days. I let it rest a couple more to make sure it finished out, but the pre-aged taste of the beer is terrific.

Great for hoppy brews
Leaves a very crisp finish that helps to showcase a hop forward beer. I use this for my pale ales.

Used in my Jalapeno beer - was a hit

Wyeast rocks
Love the smack packs. When your pack blows up like a football, you have no doubts your yeast is working.
