Sourdough Starter Day 2 and Day 3

Now we’re cookin’!  

Above is Day 2 of the sourdough starter.  You can see a layer of yellowish liquid running through the starter.  That’s the hooch.  I just stirred the starter well before its feeding.  

Below is Day 3 of the “situation starter”.  Now it’s starting to get going.  I’m totally excited!  It smells slightly sour but still mostly floury.  I can see the bread at the end of the tunnel!

  1. okay – its totally doing its THANG! :D Yippee! Its got the hooch and I’m on Day 2 – and its all frothy and bubbly. Gonna stir it, dump half and feed it right now.

  2. I just did my first feeding. I’m not sure if it’s doing anything yet. I did seem to have some hooch so I stirred it back in before dumping half and feeding. Hopefully it will look like more tomorrow!

  3. Amy B- I know it was such a sad day. I didn’t know if I should mention it or not. But thanks for your words.

    Cassie- Yea! It’s looking good!

    Arundathi- You’ve got no love? Hm… is your lid ajar? Is the temperature above like 78 and below 100?

    Holly- Better late than never!

    Libby- I’m glad you’ve got some action! Very nice!

    Jaina- Funny!? :)

    Julie- Thanks! Sure, I can post some pictures of the dumping and feeding process.

    Aimee- SOURDOUGH DOUGHNUTS!? What!? what!? What!? Yes! I want now!!!

  4. Joy! ( I think you’re amazing by the way )

    but I was just wondering if you could post pictures of the feeding? (Throwing out half and adding in more flour/water, then do you mix it up, just let it sit? etc)

    Thank you!

  5. We’ve got some action now! I fed it last night and this morning I also had “hooch” which I questioned, but see now that it’s a good thing :) Will keep feeding & loving and hope for the best.

  6. Hi Joy, What a happy starter on such a sad day. Thanks for the brightness, bubbles & thoughts of what is possible on tomorrow’s breakfast table. It certainly brightens my day!
