is my 8 day old starter supposed to have a strong acidic scent?
hi my starter is about a week old i made it following susan's directions on her blog wildyeastblog.com i've been feeding it every day at 9am and 9pm so twelve hour feeds. yesterday i suddenly noticed it became foamy and bubbly overnight so today i used all white for the flour rather than the previous rye + white mixed.
so, feed 75g starter with 75g white flour and 75g water. a couple hours later i noticed it had already doubled, lovely and bubbly all over. but.... i noticed a really strong scent since yesterday morning and its still there. i can only describe it as acidic, not sure. but its strong. i wasn't sure what to do so i put it in the fridge.
does it sound like its doing alright, or is it stuffed somehow?
this is my first serious starter and i'd appreciate any help thanks!
