Q: "i have received my kit today and have tried the apple cider recepie (ive made beer before using a large brew set) but the yeast seems to be not working, or i might be doing something wrong. ive added apple juice, sugar and yeast, its in a warm spot, but its been 12hrs and there is NO action. please let me know what i might be doing wrong."

A: You are right, it should show signs of active fermentation by now. Add more yeast, shake vigorously and see if that re-starts the fermentation. Also check to see that your apple juice was free of preservatives.

Actually I and many others recommend not doing that: Pitch at or slightly below the lagering temp - it results in a cleaner beer. Reason is that most of the off-taste "things" that yeast produces is at the start of fermentation.
