In a batch like yours that has had a problem starting I would continue adding slowly, maybe adding a quart, then 1 gallon ... 2 gallon then the rest. There is a good chance that adding the starter to the 5 gallons will work out but your chances improve doing it slowly.

Ok, I gently sprinkled my acclimated yeast starter on top yesterday but did not stir it. I was too nervous to stir it until this morning. But when I did, it fizzed very nicely - almost like it was wishing me good morning. :)

We have ignition and liftoff! Thanks everyone.
