After 3 days, the bubbling slowed a lot so I opened the bucket and was pleased to see most of the krausen was gone. I took an OG reading and saw that my 565 starter took it from OG of 1.063 to 1.010 in 3 DAYS!!!!! The sample tasted good, albeit VERY yeasty and cloudy because it's so young.
I got my pound of sucrose dissolved in about 3.5 cups of water, boiled for 5 minutes, cooled and gently poured into my bucket. Then I was gently spinning my bucket for about a minute. The bubbling kicked up again hardcore almost immediately and has now slowed again after 12 hours. Now, it's just a matter of patience! But I'm eager to see how low my OG will go from here.
Cheshire, you recommend racking to 2ndary after about 3 weeks? I usually don't rack to 2ndary but I will just so I can wash the yeast and get another batch going sooner if need be. Thanks!
