Mold in new starter
Hi everyone -
I'm using Peter Reinhart's method for starting a seed culture (the pineapple juice method, not the mash method), from his whole grain bread book. It's day 6, still in phase 3. It's been very slow developing. This morning I noticed a couple of small spots of mold growing on the dried culture on the sides of the bowl. The culture itself smells fine (though it still doesn't show a lot of signs of life). Should I just throw this lot out and start over? Can I remove the mold and have it be OK? Thanks!
