starter turned orange-ish
I am on starter #2 now, and it's going the same way as starter #1 :( It's starting to turn orange and smell sickly sweet like non-acetone nail polish remover :( It's the end of summer here, and temperatures are between 12C and 22C. I don't think it's to cold :(
Am I doing anything wrong?
I'm following the method outlined in Peter Rienhart's Artisan Breads Fast. I am adding white flour to pineapple juice (I can't find a link for it, but it's made from concentrate with no added sugar). I stir it with a fork 3 times daily.
- Day 1/2: next to nothing happens. Mixture separates between stirs.
- Day 3: feed, get home to minor bubbles. Some separation.
- Day 4/5: sweet smell gets stronger, some separation, mixture colour turns from light yellow to light orange/tan.
I'll have pics when I get them off my phone...
