Help with sourdough starter

February 24, 2011 - 5:39pm -- mdrdds

I need help with sour dough starter. I tried to use the starter in the CIA book for artisan breads. I could not get it to work. Than I tried the starter recpie in the Bakers apprentice. It worked for a while than it died after I froze it and it couldn't be revived. Ive tried different things from different books to no avail. I'm really confused. HELP!! Mike Robinson

Greetings Everyone,


I am new here and to baking in general. I have been using Peter Reinhart's The Bread Bakers Apprentice for about a month and have been successful baking Whole Wheat, Light Whole Wheat and French Bread as well as the awesome pizza crust! Now I have decided to try his sourdough starter recipe but I don't seem to be getting the proper results.
