First Sourdough Starter
I love baking and recently decided to start making my own bread, which has been great. I have not yet, however, tried my favorite type of bread which is sourdough. After doing a bit of research on wild yeast starters, I found a recipe for one using rye flour and unsweetened pineapple or orange juice. I started it three days ago using the orange juice. Today when I went to feed it, it had a peculiar smell, as far as I know the only smell it should have is a yeasty smell. The smell was kind of, well, gassy. I'm not sure how else to describe it, like fruit that sat out too long and is beginning to go bad. Any ideas what's going on? Should it smell like this or did it go bad?
