I was on here a while ago with some beginner questions and got some great help... i've been plugging away at a basic s/d recipe and getting better. Then i got busy with uni and didn't have time to make any for a few weeks.
Now i've taken my started out of the fridge where it had been for a few weeks, and it doesn't seem to be reviving... I've fed it 3 times now (24hr intervals) and i can see a few small bubbles forming, but not many, and it isn't really increasing in size much at all (about 30% maybe, instead of the 200% or so we aim for).
Melbourne has gotten quite a bit cooler recently so i'm thinking that will have an effect, i can't really find a warmer place in the house to keep it.
any ideas though? i've looked at the started doctor who suggests it could take 6 or 7 refreshes, so i'm gonna keep going, but i found it odd that there's just no swelling.
