    I reckon that it's a bit early to get too concerned yet. I bet the wilko yeast kicks off in the next 24 hours

    That might be why then. And a different yeast added.. Pretty sure this isnt good but brewers have done this.

    Ok I’ll not panic just yet then. I’ve only done kits before and they’ve always been quite quick to get going. Fingers crossed I’ll have some activity tomorrow. Was just bit worried I’d messed something up with the mash or boil as it’s my first all grain.
    My Sg beforehand I topped up was 1.070, is that pretty reasonable for clibits recipe?

    It was just taped up in a sealed bag....
    I made a little starter with cool boiled water and a pinch of brewing sugar. Seemed like it was doing something before I put it in. Mind you, it wasn’t as much activity as the gervin that I then added today using the same technique (although I added some yeast nutrient to that starter also).

    Just checked the Sg as it had stopped fermenting. It’s down to 1.010 already, can’t belive how quickly it’s fermented out, only been 4 days!
    Put another 5L brew on last night too.
    1kg pale malt
    100g crystal
    7g challenger
    10g ek goldings
    Sg1.062
    See how this one turns out.
