Sourdough Starter Help!
My first time venturing into sourdough land and I have a starter that has been growing for 3 days. Earlier today (3rd day), my starter grew a bit (50%) and started emitting questionable odors. I understand that is normal. But the recipe I'm going by instructed half to be discarded prior to adding the third day feed. By the 4th or 5th day it's suppose to double.
Problem is, I forgot to discard the half before mixing in the third-day feed! Is my starter ruined and I need to start over? Is there a solution to this? Thanks!
