Something off mid feeding cycle of starter

February 6, 2013 - 1:14am -- neilbaldwyn



I've had my current starter for around 2 years and until recently it has performed perfectly, being used almost every day.


Around a month ago I began to notice a sulphuric smell mid feeding cycle. There is absolutely no smell upon feeding, then after around 6-8 hours the sulphur begins, but dies off as the starter grows in strength and acidity, so that it has completely gone 24 hours after feeding.
