I started my first batch of home brew lager around 24hrs ago I aerarted it and it was at 20 Degrees celcius but does not appear to be fermenting..... I know people say I have to give it time as I read a lot of forums.
I took a hydrometer reading which was 1035 and will only open after 5 days to take another to see if fermented or not, Air locks are not bubling although I know this isn't a true sign
However it is in my shed wrapped up in one of my hooded tops to keep it warm and is at around 10 Degrees celcius.
So my question is can yeast function at this low temperature and if not any suggestions - I do not have a power socket for a heat belt in the shed so thats out of the question.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Also if fermentation hasn't started after the 5 days do I justadd more yeast without aeraiting?
