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!

  Yay Herbert!

  (Check out Day 1 and Day 2 if you're terribly confused.)
