Probiotics in your starter?
I was skimming through a copy of the book "The Art of Baking with Natural Yeast" by Warnock and Richardson and read a suggestion that one could use a pro-biotic tablet, such as the ones used as a digestive aid, to stimulate a sourdough starter. Up until I read that, I thought the book was pretty much preaching from the same hymnal as many of us do.
I'm not posting a book review here or a critique of the authors work. I'm just curious to see if anyone in this community has done something similar. I've read the contents label of probiotics sold at a local CVS drugstore and the contents don't include any of the bacteria that I'm familiar with from my books and reading. It is certain that I'm not familiar with all the names of all the beneficial bacteria found in starters.
So, out of curiosity and not because I'm having trouble with my starter, has anyone ever tried cranking up their starter with probiotics?
