About my 2 sourdough starters...
The one I made using yeast smells like...alcohol!!! I know the "hooch" that forms on top is actually alcohol. I just stir it back in or pour a little off if there is a lot.
The one I started using flour, water and a little pineapple juice smells like....a nice soured buttermilk! It smells good! Is this what a starter is supposed to smell like after only a day or two fermenting? I do hope that I am making it right.
But....I am very pleased so far with the one using no commercial yeast!
Thanks Rosesinny....you motivated me into another dimension of sourdough starters...LOL
