Thanks for helping me also.
I appreciate any help, because I am a newbie when it comes to trying to activate these starters. I also did the stupid thing of trying to activate two at one time, so I have to be extra careful not to contaminate the other one.
Nothing usually goes smooth for me the first time, so I donít know if I am out of the woods yet.
Sorry to hear your starters required several washings. I just threw out some starter and fed and mixed again, so I will see what happens now. I was just ready to upload these pictures. I used new containers. I hated to throw out any of the starters, but I guess that is the way it goes.
Thanks for your additional post.
I think that is where I went wrong, in not feeding them every 6 hours. Will see how things go from here on.
