comment What would have caused my wort to darken in the fermenter?
Could the particulates dropping out cause a BIG difference in color? I was hoping for an SRM (morey) of around 19, but looks closer to a 35 (based on my extremely limited experience.)

1.012. I like this one more than any other I've brewed.

I went with my gut instinct, which of course is based on only four other home brew batches. Probably should have waited, if for no other reason, then to know if it was the yeast or not.

I misunderstood what you meant by starter. I used Wyeast with an activator pack inside the pouch. Against some advice (including expert at my local supply shop) I did add more yeast yesterday afternoon. By this morning, there was activity. I'll never know if it was the new yeast packet or if it was the first. And of course, only time will tell if there were any lasting affects.

It did have a starter. Once my local supply shop is open, I'll go get another and pitch it this evening. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks!

Bought it yesterday morning and drove straight home. OG was 1.060 and I'm getting the same reading this morning. Pitched it just under 17 hours ago.
