Day 1 — 24 hours since these guys woke up. I fed them again at 8am, and now at 8pm, one of them is clearly doing much better than the other. It’s twice the size, and is bubbling like crazy. The other one is just kind of hanging out, bubbling a little but not too much, and hasn’t risen much at all. But I still have hope that it’ll get its act in gear.
It’s interesting to note that the one doing much better is the 03/08 batch that was in the freezer. The 06/08 batch from the pantry is the sad one. I wonder if freezing kept the bacteria fresher somehow.
