Is my (Tartine) starter ok?

February 15, 2012 - 6:04pm -- Bread Head

My starter does not smell like stinky cheese??

I let it sit for the first 3 days and it smelled like stinky cheese.

Now I have been feeding it every morning for about 3 or 4 days, and in the morning when I go to feed it again it already smells sweet............like after I just fed it.

Is it ok?  Am I still on the right track?

Thanks!
