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... ;)
