Thick Putty, "Yeasty" smell, no bubbles
Hello Fellow Fresh Loafers,
After a year of using this site to get recipes and develop a novice understanding of the baking process, I decided to take the next step... and set up an actual account. I also figured, if I have an account, I should develop a starter. Using instructions from this site, I started two and a half days ago.
Day 1: 2 TBS Pineapple Juice, 1 TBS organic Whole Wheat Flour (King Arthur), 1 TBS organic Rye Flour
Day 2: repeat day 1 to exisitng mixture
Day 3: in about 5 hours I am due to repeat the above...
I have a tight clump of thick putty. I stir periodically (I read somewhere that airation is good.) And it smells faintly yeasty. but no bubbles or other signs of growth yet.
Am I on the right track?
