OK so I checked it approx. 15 – 16 hours after pitching yeast and they are going nuts, here are some observations:
The crisp grass green color is no longer so. It is super cloudy from the expanding yeast I can only assume and it looks much paler. Almost like a lime green juice but “cloudy” for a lack of better explanation. I took the airlock off and pushed down the cap of vegetable matter with a sterilized spoon to introduce some more oxygen for the yeasties. The smell was not what I expected. It was a complex smell, it has an initial sour note “But not rancid”, kind of a grassy/vegetable body and the faintest amount of mint in the background. I had to take several sniffs to figure it all out. Not a very “cool” Cucumbery smell that I was looking for. I will continue slightly swirling 2X a day with opening the airlock to punch down the cap once a day for 4 more days. After that I will just swirl around when I think the cap is getting dry or if I think CO2 is building up too much. If I see any other significant changes to sight or smell I will let you know.
