I got my starter from Carl's friends today.



Its been rehydrated and started to bubble pretty quickly after I added flour and water to it. I cant wait to feed it in the morning and see how it does in the next couple of days.

There'll be more pics as it grows.

Get some here for free.

I hope this is not one of those "I'm sorry I asked deals" but how come you boys ain't posting this stuff up on the 'Other Foods' section? I would never think of going to Off Topic for a sour dough recipe... at least until now.

Hell Fire Grill,
How is the starter working out for you? Have you made bread with it yet?

YA! It works real good and has a nice smell & flavor.

Carl's starter seems to be pretty hungry all the time. The last couple of days its had a problem with it smelling like super strong vinegar, a way strong smell. I read Carl's brochure and it said to give it a shot of Cider vinegar. That and composting about 98% of the mother seems to have gotten it back under control. I think I may have been underfeeding it for a few days and not giving it enough water at feeding time. I'll probably make more bread with it tomarrow if ALL the vinegar smell is gone.

I just checked out a book from the library by Carol Field called Focaccia simple breads from the Italian oven. My next loaf will be something resembling that. I been wanting to fire up one of my stick burners and cook some bread so I might do that.

Mine likes to be fed twice a day. I maintain about 500g by dumping 250g and then feeding 125g flour & 125g water. by feeding the same amount by weight I get a thick 100% starter. If you feed the same amount by volume, say 1 cup of each, you will get a thinner 166% starter. I like the thicker starter because it's easier to tell if it's happy because it will rise in the jar by more than 2x. It keeps the acid smell away too.

Carl's sourdough flavor is more complex, from the culture being already aged, and it leavans better than my homemade starters. For what it costs its worth the wait to get it.

Thanks - just printed up a printed envelope to them, and will stick a self addressed stamped one inside of that. Probably stick a few bucks in there too.
