Hello! New here.
I've been lurking on this site for about a week now. I read a very long and intesting post about making a sourdough starter with pineapple juice so I thought I'd try it.
It seemed to work well and I've got 2 starters going, one with rye and one with wheat. I'll probably toss one at some point because there's probably no point in keeping both, I just wasn't sure if one would start better than the other.
I made one loaf of sourdough this weekend. It was nice looking, but tasted bland. Not enough salt or time I think. I made a second one today and its so cute. I hope it tastes better than the first. My dough is rising fairly quickly, so I think next loaf I will slow down overnight in the fridge. I can't wait until this one cools down a bit so I can taste it!
Thanks for all the great posts on this site. You are all so helpful!
