Since 2016

I've always been into cooking but this past year I watched the documentary on Netflix cooked. There's a segment on air in food and they discussed fermentation. For some reason it interested me and immediately made my first starter I've been baking with it ever since.

Characteristics

It's sour and very alive? I'm a novice and have been baking for about 6 months as of October 2016. Not sure on what I'm looking for.
