Ok...sounds like a plan. That is what I'll do.

Can't wait for this stuff to be ready. Smells great already. Ha ha

Thanks for your help

Day5: Things seem to be going well. It has been five days since I added the starter ( two packs of EC-1118). Started at 1.075 and today it's at 1.060.

That's not much- keep an eye on it and keep stirring it! In 5 days, mine dropped about 50 points!

I wonder if it's too cool in my house? This morning the temperature on the bucket said 70. Right now it's at 72. What do you think?

That's about 10 degrees warmer than my house! Your temperature is fine.

That is the temp on the bucket though. Still, you don't see this as an issue?

Hmm... Any ideas on how I could get it moving or do you think it's just being a bit slow?

I mix once per day with a stir stick. I just stir for about two minutes, maybe it's not enough?

Truly appreciate your insight.

If you've got any yeast nutrient or energizer, you could add that at the next stirring. that might help.
