It's taken me awhile (well, a day or two) to come to terms with my first (note, I said first, I mean to succeed!) failure at making a sourdough starter.
What went wrong? Hmm, don't know! Could have been too warm, shouldn't have used yoghurt, the moon was in the constellation of pisces...who knows! At day 2 all looked promising but the desired bubbles did not appear, I left it another day, still no bubbles and the smell was far from pleasant. Bin!
Anyways I have done me some more reading about the dark art of sourdough; and I am going to try a starter from just flour and water (although there is some debate on whether the water should be filtered!?). I will report back.
