I've been fooling around with sourdough (first time in my life) for the past couple of weeks. I was given the Carl's 1847 starter and while it rises well, it just doesn't have any tang to it at all. I tried several things to encourage more tang but still very mild starter.
I've got some wild starter going that is promising ... but in the meantime, I got impatient and ordered some breadtopia starter and I've been waking it up. It may need more time to wake up, it rises slower than the starter I was using (or maybe it's just the weather, it has cooled off here) BUT, "Oh Boy" it's got such a lovely tangy smell and flavor. Really wonderfully sour.
Anyone else here using it?
