Maibock in the chamber..

I am worried that the lag time was not enough, I pitched at 2 pm yesterday and at 10 am we had a developed krausen and a steady rhythm of co2 release. I normally aerate with an aquarium pump and stone set up, This time I put my LARGE starter and racked on top of it while rocking vigorously. I had read that there is not difference in the amount of oxygen you can get in the wort unless you shoot pure oxygen in from a tank. So either I over pitched or I oxygenated well. Only time will tell with this guy, he is starting on a 3 month journey.
