Yes....Patience....if you followed the recipe exactly, it will start. The temp might be a little low and may be causing it to start slower than usual. I usually do mine at around 72-75 degrees F....

In the past I've made starters from half-full 10 oz bottles of Walmart Apple juice but I usually don't do that now. Never really needed one. Just experimenting.:)

Wow!! That's wickedly high! That's like strapping rockets on your back. I wonder if the compressors they use for compressing air to those levels are the same ones used for CO2?

Did you cut the recipe down to 1 pound of sugar instead of 2? If not, it might be too sweet! With 1 pound, it's just about right. The 3068 will leave a certain percentage of sugar behind.
