What will happen if I don't incubate my yeast in a starter before pitching?!

Question: What will happen if I don't incubate my yeast in a starter before pitching!?
I usually pitch directly, myself, and have been lucky so far!. At best, you get a slow start to fermentation!. At worst, some bacteria may have infected your wort and might get a jump on the yeast, ruining that batch!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

sorry misread and saw do instead of don't!.!.!.

more likely to have a stuck fermentation!.!. no way to tell if you got a bad yeast packet full of dead yeast!.!. and ti will be slow to start!.!. but that is it!.

i almost always do that!.!.!. leaves me with less stuck fermentation's!.!. i will start the yeast when i finish the boil about a cup of water and a half cup of sugar!.!. cool that down and pitch the yeast!.!. then let your wort cool down and pitch the combo into the wort!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

What kind of yeast are you pitching!? If it's a pack of dry yeast, then it will just take off fermenting no problem!. Same goes for a smack pack!. If its just one of the vials, then it will probably still take off no problem, but might be a little sluggish at first!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Fermentation might be a little slower, depends on how much yeast you are pitching and their viability!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
