Next time, I recommend making a liquid culture with some honey or malt and injecting that into the grain bag. That will be quick depending on temperature. Keep the bag in a dark place and for goodness sakes do not disturb it.
Is there any water accumulation at the bottom of the bag or or is the grain looking mushy?
