Day 8 (11:30): Some bubbles on top, but no change in volume. Yeasty smell in the oven, but not in the jar. No hooch visible. Removed 225 g starter, leaving 225 g in the jar, and added 100 g tap water and 50 g whole wheat flour.
|It's doing something other than making hooch = success.|
|Ah, new lines.|
Regrettably, I didn't take a picture of what it looked like in the afternoon. There was a thick layer of bubbles on top of a thick layer of liquid-looking stuff, which was on top of a much thicker layer of flour gloop. The overall volume did not change. So, I stirred it and put it back in the oven.
It promptly went flat and had developed a thin layer of hooch on top by four hours later. It smelled terrible.
So, at 23:30 or so, I chucked it down the sink and rinsed out the applesauce jar.
|Return of the Hooch|
|Lots of hooch.|
Maybe one of these days I'll get some starter from the bakery down the street, but for now I'm going to focus on other things.Like waffles.
