Didn't realize it needed a long time at low volume I thought a day would be good. Is this for all dregs or Brett in particular since its a slower working yeast?
Also, probably went too high on the OG of the wort. Went with a normal starter OG so around 1.04ish? I did 10g DME per 100mL, didn't bother taking gravity.
I am seeing a good deal of chunks floating around in there now though, so I'm pretty sure the yeast are doing something. It also doesn't smell like anything, so I guess that could be good or bad. Did I stress them too much or should I be good as long as they multiply? Is it possible to take a new, small sample and propagate that up the right way or should I not worry?
