Glad it worked out...Starters are just like beers, and sometimes they do the "fermentation may take up to 72 hours to start" thing as well.

I've found sometimes they don't take off till after I turn off the stirplate...

Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew

Another thing is to try to make the starter and yeast the same (or at near) temps before mixing.
