comment How to estimate yeast starter viability when using stir plate?
Understand totally about the gravity, but I was really looking for some reasonably reliable "eyeball it" method. It's definitely very creamy in both color and texture and the foam ring is growing increasingly taller in height so I'm guessing that all is well. I suppose I'll get better at judging the progress with more experience. For now, I'll use the popular 18-36 hour range as a baseline. Thanks.

Makes sense. Then the entire surface area of the fermenter acts as the heat exchanger. Good idea. Thanks.

Good suggestion @brewchez. Especially part about pushing me towards using making starters.
