Starter went slack and won't get up!
Man, have you heard this one beore, or what? :)
The same starter I've been using for months just up and failed. It was nice and airy, frothy and bubbly.. and then all of a sudden, psshhtt! It's more like yoghurt than starter. It's just flat. It consumes some flour, I believe, cause it smells funky.. but it ain't doing the job of levitating my breads anymore. So, I chucked it. I started another one up and after about a week, I had good looking results.. and now, just as I'm building up my first batch to bread making proportions, this one goes flat too! Seems to have coincided with the warm weather.. I've done some archive searching, but I'm not seeing what might be the cause of all this. Ahh.. yeast!
