Now I know what you rye people are saying!
I created a rye starter a few weeks ago. I have been experimenting with 100% rye bread because I have a family member who can no longer tolerate gluten, yet loves bread.
I have read about how wonderful rye starters smell, and my young little starter just smelled like beer. Starting on Wednesday, I have been doing a 1:2:2 feeding every 12 hours, and now my starter smells wonderful! I could just sit with my nose in the jar, I cannot believe the difference in aromas from a few days ago. I am baking tomorrow and am looking forward to the results.
