Yeast for me has always been the mysterious side of brewing and mead making.
So here's my ?:
My wyeast 3787 never swelled. pitched anyway into 1.100 OG must, knowing that's pretty high even for a high gravity ale yeast. No starter - still gun shy from one failed attempt with no backup.
After 24 hrs and no activity I decided to pitch my backup - two rehydrated packs of Lalvin D47.
If it is viable, will the 3787 kick in when the gravity is more agreeable? Will these two yeasts work together?
Do yeasts ferment simultaneously?
