Question about my starter...
I finally went and made another starter after my first 2 (!) died on me. This third one seems to be doing quite well in its old glass Eden salt container. I did have a surprise this morning, however.
I decided to try leaving it for a couple days without feeding. I stirred twice a day. When I woke up this morning, which would've been the third day, it had orange flecks. Liquidy. Kinda smelled bad, but not horrible. Kinda sour, but not beery. I don't really understand how to explain the smell. Anyway, I fed it 12 hours ago and, when I looked at it again, it had almost tripled but still retained the not so beery smell. I fed it again just now and plan to feed in 12 hours again to see if I can get things set to right.
Is the orange I was seeing just hooch and should I keep going, or should I pitch it and try again?
