How much yeast are you using? Liquid/dry?How do you make your starters Denny? That's a really long time to finish fermenting, do you check the gravity? It could be done before 4 days but just not flocculated yet. I'm guessing you don't use a stirplate since you're talking about the yeast dropping?
Nope, no stirplate, usually 3 qt. starters, although sometimes only 2 qt. Sometimes takes a day or so for it to get going, 2-3 days to ferment, so I plan on a minimum of 4 days before it's ready to go in the fridge to crash the yeast.
A stirplate would speed things up if you were so inclined.
