comment Why did fermentation take so long to start?
My smack pack was manufactured in June. According to the calculation on Mr. Malty, that leaves around 50% viable. So if it was a fresh pack, the site thinks the one would be enough for my low-gravity beer, but it was just old enough that they say it should be two. I think this essentially agrees with mdma's answer--I likely underpitched. I guess I should just make starters from here on out.

+1 and thanks for the reassurance. I'd chatted with LHBS owner about it earlier this afternoon (prior to getting home and finding activity), and he insisted I must have pitched while it was too hot or failed to aerate or something. Good to know this happens.
