Starter - What am I doing wrong
I used Forkish's book to make a starter before and kept it for some time Unfortunately a hospital stay and it was gone. For some reason I can't seem to get another starter going. I Know its winter but I have a warm spot to keep it.
Day one - Followed instructions
Day two - it look and smelled great (followed instructions)
Day three - somewhat runny and foul smelling, definitely not a beer like smell. Followed instructions anyways.
This is my third attempt at getting a new starter going.
I use King Arthur 100% Whole Grain Whole Wheat (14%)
The measured temp where I keep it is 72-75 degrees. It is on top of heat venting but its insulated from direct contact with vent metal.
Any suggestions PLEASE!!!
I miss my bread. Besides, just got a new oven.
