Guys, I'm a noob also, so forgive my ignorance.
Do the Coopers drops include dried yeast as well, or are they, essentially, precisely measured sugar cubes with a good blend of dextrose and sucrose? I didn't see any mention of yeast in JamesPorters original post, is it possible that he washed away the wild yeasts so there is no activity going on at all?
Of course, he could have added his yeast and neglected to mention it in the initial post; in which case, belay my entire comment
In looking at the photos, it seems like an active ferment would be pushing the globs o' stuff toward the surface, but the globs seem static.
