I'm a new winemaker, working on my 7th batch.

I followed this recipe for watermelon wine:

http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Watermelon-Wine


I am at Part 3, Step 1 where there should be foaming on the surface and bubbling in the airlock. But there is no activity at all after 24 hours. I did use a different yeast than what was suggested in the recipe.

The environment is okay. A peach wine I started only a few days earlier is in the same room and it is bubbling steady.

Any suggestions as to what I can try.

Thanks.

wait another 24 hours. I would stir it now and every day during fermentation. also insure ambient temp is at least 70degF

Thanks. A little patience was all it took. It started going good the next day.
