Starter

Since 2017

It's delicious and then the more I understood it's chemical process', wild yeast, loctoB, acetic acid, health benefits with digestion. Over 30 years and I still seek the perfect loaf, each one is better, but none are perfect.

Characteristics

Relatively dry, smells faintly of beer and somewhat yeasty. At it's most active stage, 8 or so hours, it is very fresh smelling. Very active, I place a rubber band on my Mason Jar right after feeding and watch the rise go to almost twice the volume.
