Gigantic petrie dish?

April 19, 2007 - 12:35am -- Thegreenbaker

Hi all,


My question is this;

How likely is it to grow other organisms in your "newly-being-created" starter?


I am doing a 100% rye starter and I kept the lid on after each time I fed it. tonight will be the 4th feeding and possibly go from seed culture to barm. (I am following Reinhearts Sourdough starter recipe in BBA but with the amounts halved.)
