Help!!! Sourdough smells like "Nail polish remover"
My confession: I am not new to sourdough baking but I did not bake with sourdough much this year. I also get some sourdough starter from a baker friend when I wanted to bake..
Since I want to start a new sourdough starter anew, I follow one successful starter blog religiously( the added flour is a combination of rye flour and AP flour) . At the 4th day the starter went crazy rising and bubbling excellently. At that time, I realized that I did it wrong( instead of taken out most of the sourdough starter to leave the content of jar weight +40 g. starter, I took only 40 gram out of the bottle). Day 5, 6, 7 religiously follow the instructions. Nothing happen. No bubble, no rise, the starter drop to the bottom on the floating test.
Now on its 9 days, my starter smell like a nail polish remover! My question:
1. Is my starter now "gone bad" and I need to get rid of it. or
2. It is still good , continue with the feeding?
Please help. Thank you.
