Wild Yeast Hunt, Day 3 (Sourdough Starter)
Friends! We've done it! Wild yeast has been caught. Herbert is alive!
This morning I pulled back the towel to reveal this bubbly beast, and there's definitely a distinct sour aroma.
All that's left is to let this aroma develop for a few days, and you've got your starter!
Separation is still occuring, so to prevent icky dry tops, stir it 1-2 times a day for the 3-4 days you have this sitting on your counter. And keep it covered!
(Check out Day 1 and Day 2 if you're terribly confused.)
