Procedure

Yeast

I had an old smack pack of 1728 Scottish Ale.  I did not seam to activate, but I tried it anyway.  I picked up a propagator pack of 1728 at local brew supply store, but did not have time to get it ready, so I pitched it as is.

18 hours later, there was no yeast activity so I added two packages of Safale 04.  It started taking off within 2 hours.
