Last week I tried to start two yeast starters and had the hardest time with them. Today I needed to make two more, a Niagara and a cranberry. This time I put the starters in a sink with very hot water from the tap, meaning the temp of the starter itself reached about 92 degrees and maintained a warmer temp longer. about three hours later they were going like crazy and I doubled the amount of juice and changed the water again with very hot water. I was using lalvin 116 yeast. The juice I had was very cold and I have belts on both primaries to bring them up to temp and will add the starters tomorrow.
