Poor thing, I have a feeling I'm not making it happy.

We're on Day 5 and last night I noticed an alcohol type of smell.. Today its pretty strong, but not "blow-you-away" strong.

I started it with whole wheat oragnic flour and water in a clean jar (jar is not so much anymore)... I feed 2x a day 1 part water, one part flour.  Now I am using just white flour. My house is somewhat warm, not freezing.

I do notice rising, but I dont know if more should be happening and whats going on with this smell...
