Ok... so I dont know what Im doing and I need help :P
Poor thing, I have a feeling I'm not making it happy.
We're on Day 5 and last night I noticed an alcohol type of smell.. Today its pretty strong, but not "blow-you-away" strong.
I started it with whole wheat oragnic flour and water in a clean jar (jar is not so much anymore)... I feed 2x a day 1 part water, one part flour. Now I am using just white flour. My house is somewhat warm, not freezing.
I do notice rising, but I dont know if more should be happening and whats going on with this smell...
I heard about that sometimes when making your first starter there might be a point that you think something is wrong and you dump it because you think its not right but its just a "phase." I dont know about the smell tho!
^^^Day 4 (and what is this stuff? I heard about hooch, but its in the middle, not on top)
^^^ Day 5, morning before feeding (Dont worry, I cleaned my jar)<<gross
I see stuff going on... Too much liquid?
Thanks a lot! :)
