Starter Trials

I found Debra Wink's pineapple starter writings (which appear to be the same recipe you're using), and inspired by her findings, I started my own trials.  Now on day nine, the results are interesting.  I have three batches going: one with distilled water and a blend of 50/50 whole wheat/bread flour; one with tap water and the same 50/50 flour blend, and another starter with pineapple juice and whole wheat flour that I'm now feeding with only bread flour.  Now on day nine, I see no measurable difference, though that wasn't the case up to this point.
