With a stirplate you might not see anything, especially if the fermentation occurs overnight.
I did a step up starter on a stir plate and did not see any activity at all on the first 2 steps. After the third step, which showed some foaming, I cold crashed it to decant the liquid, I had a nice healthy layer of yeast.
The first one I started in 2L and waited 6 days before before dumping it. The second one I started in 500ml and waited three days before dumping.
Have either of you successfully propagated from one of these packs with the June production date?
