This is my second attempt at making a rye starter and it's not working. I purchased organic rye flour from Whole Foods (bulk bins) and using Dole pineapple juice (canned, not from concentrate). This should be very straightforward, but I have no idea why this is not working.
sourdough starter failure with pineapple juice
My sourdough never bubbled after 3 days. I used pineapple juice (canned) and wheat flour. 2 TBSP each, and re-fed for 3 days. Finally I threw it out. Was the canned juice the problem?
