Dunkelweizen - Update

Ugh. The packet of Danstar Munich Wheat yeast failed to take off in 24 hours, which is my "Oh Crap" limit, after which I pitch another yeast. Fortunately I had a packet of Safale-06 wheat beer yeast, which went in last night and is bubbling away this morning.

I'm not sure what went wrong. The thermowell told me the wort was cooled to 71, and I aerated it through the airstone for about 10 minutes. The yeast packet wasn't expired. Only thing I can think of is some kind of pH problem, but I don't have any test strips around. Oh well.
