Ive been hanging around here for about 2 weeks now... i am new to making bread and i am getting BBA soon.. But i decided that i would try a sourdough starter anyway. so i started off with 1 Tbsp of WW and 1 water (day one: saw nothing) 2 tbsp WW and 2 water (day 2) nothing... 4 tbsp WW and water (day 3: print pickle (my sourdough starter) stinks like there is no tomorow.. but i havent seen him rise or deflate or nothing.. there is a layer of liquid on top ... im assuming hooch). So everyday im feeding him as my book says and i dont see him move or anything.. just the clear liquid that keep forming and he still stink.. oh and i see a few bubbles but i dont know if it is just air from me stirring the food in..
I keep print pickle on my stovetop with the light on low above the stove.. My house gets cold at night (as i am in the north) so the temp is about 60 F where he stays..
Should i throw it out.. what am a doing wrong? Any advice..
I have looked in alot of threads and have not found any answers if i need to be redirected please do :)
thank you so much!
