An avid, ambitious homebrewer, I'm currently brewing on an all-electric system capable of 20+ gallon batches.

comment Rescuing a weak lager fermentation
That is pretty small--I try to step up to at least 1 gallon (3.8L) for liquid lager yeast. That said, if you had good activity to start with, it should be fine. The only think I might do is up the temp closer to 55F.

Yes, be patient. How big a starter did you make? What was your procedure? How are you maintaining temps? Optimum temp for that yeast is 50-55F--maybe your fridge is swinging a bit lower?
