Taking yet another crack at getting a sourdough starter going after losing interest a couple of years ago.  I cheated this time and ordered one from King Arthur Flour.  We'll see.

If I recall, Elliott - that's a very old starter too - good save!

my housemate forgot to feed my sourdough starter while i was out of town, & it was crusted over and moldy when I got back... I scraped off the gross weirdness, and found a dense & moist chunk at the bottom of the glass bowl...  I mixed some water and flour into it to reconstitute it, and it is still alive..!

I just made a sourdough! The starter I made was just rye flour,  water, and a touch of honey, been feeeding for the last 5five days with bread flour and water. Needed more proof time =, but turned out great! Just a hint of sour, with an after taste that stays for awhile. BTW I am a baker, working in a bakery in Lone Pine, Ca.

@Elliott I would LOVE that 150 year old starter!!

I just baked my first loaves of sourdough from a 150 year old starter I got from a friend...  mmmmm... success..!

I have made many a pizza dough crust from scratch... but I believe this is my first sourdough bread baking experience... :)

If any of you fellows want some sourdough starter, and are passing through Seattle, give me a challah... ;)

Moneys... and what to do with em

Hello,I have spent the last year paying off all my credit card debt. I have paid off $10,000 so far, just $1,000 to go.I've been working two jobs to achieve this, and also studying part time so that I can change into a career of my choice (instead of just working in whatever jobs I can get).My next goal will be to save $10,000 as a safety fund.But then, I'm not sure...In what ways do you all invest? Or do you not invest at all? Do you prefer to have it still safety in the bank? Let me know, for…See More
