Help! My two 10 & 3 days old sourdough starter got switched ><
this is maybe a pure idiotic question:
so i've been growing my "old" sourdough for 10 days by tomorrow. he looks all great (i named him David anyw), all bubbly, smell fresh and have already doubled in volume. but before that, i got skeptical.. all pessimistic.. because on day 7, he did not looks like something i'll ever use for baking. it smell awful, runny, hooch-ing everyday. so i decided to make another batch right away, same hydration which is 100%, same ingredients (i use bread flour and filtered water) AND AN EXACT SAME CONTAINER. i've been feeding my "new" starter well. and now, up to day 3 it bubbles and it risen just exactly like how it supposed to be after day 7 or up. i tried to check which one is going to rise higher by drawing line but failed. my "young" starter is really really risen up very well, like a happy kid, every time i checked on both, they seems to be in an exact same height.
please help! how can i tell which one is which. one thing i noticed "a little" is one of them have a slightly darker color, like brownish while the other one is as white as milk. other than that, NOTHING. they have the same fresh yeasty smell, rising time, volume, consistency, etc. i've tried checking by doing a float test and they both did float
