NMNF Woes - Refrigerator elves?
I have no idea what happened....maybe there are elves in my fridge messing with my starters.
I currently have 3 different NMNF starters in my fridge, one because I "lost" it, (it was buried in the back of the bottom shelf behind some really nasty pickled beets that my DH won't let me throw out) and in my frenzy I just made a new one and a third because the "new" one seemed to loose it's Umph so I started another. #3 has been doing great, but again yesterday I went to build a levain and I got a few little bubbles with the first feed, but absolutely no action at all with number 2. So I fed it Whole grain Rye for #3 thinking it would love that, and still no action. In desperation I put 15 grams of #2 in the mixture and put it back in the warm breeding spot. <sigh>
Something is wrong, and now that report cards, parent teacher interviews, and school musical are finished I want to fix this! So here are the questions:
- how do I revive a "dead" NMNF starter? (or should I just start over)
-my fridge tends to run cold, could this be the problem?
-or are there elves
