Sourdough tastes like rye bread

March 13, 2013 - 2:02pm -- run100s

I tried to search to see if this has happened, but i cannot seem to find an answer. I just baked my first sourdough loaf from a fairly new starter (1 month) and instead of tasting like sourdough it tasted like rye. I started with rye/whole wheat mix with pineapple juice, but later feedings have been using white/water. Do i need to have more white feedings before i get a white/sour taste? I like rye, but when your mouth is expecting sourdough, rye was a bummer!
