The pack puffed up just like it was supposed to. Two months too soon to see how it worked.
I have used Wyeast before, in an American pale ale ! it is very active, my first time 12 hours later I went to check on my fermenter and the air lock was clogged??? on trying to clear it, it exploded! (Advise get a bigger fermenter than a 5 gallon bucket if you use this ) This time I used a 7 gallon for a 5.5 gallon batch, first Lager I have tried, only time will tell!
