Since 2004

Started work in 1983 at a bakery in CT, and used their starter for bread. Took some with me used used it for 15 year. Moved to California and made a new starter that we've used ever since.

Characteristics

It's generally bubbly and happy, only slightly sour. If it sits for a week in the fridge without being fed, it can form a grey sludge on top, which we just discard and feed up the starter well for a few days.
