We're sorry to hear that you're having some trouble, Tom! We'd recommend feeding the starter a few more times before using it, as you suggested might the problem. We'd also recommend feeding it with some whole wheat flour a few times to give it a bit of a jump start. The consistency of the starter seems odd though, are you also discarding half of the starter at each feeding, using equal parts flour and water to the amount of starter? Discarding at maintenance feedings is important as this makes room for new yeast cells and good food-fermenting bacteria to grow. We hope this helps!
