    I have to drag out the dutch ovens and start making some bread again. Is there a better winter meal than home made bread and hot soup?

    It is said that Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb...999 to go for me I guess, as my starter failed. Back to the drawing board and perhaps to a sourdough class that is being held at a community bread oven fundraising event this coming Saturday. My wife was suspect of the freshness of my starter flour but I’ve accused her of adding a drop or two of Clorox to my jar.

    Why do you think it failed?

    I read this recently and it was interesting. Gas/bubbles/rise early on = bacteria. PH level reaches a certain point and bacteria stop, no more gas/bubbles/rise for a bit. A few days later, yeast take over, and you start getting gas/bubbles/rise again.

    I tried the "see if it floats" test after day 5 and 6 and I couldn't get it to do so. Also, I was on a 2/day feeding schdeule after day 3 and bubbles would appear. Then when I went for the next feeding, water was on top. I'm trying rye this time and also, my bread four was a year old, but kept in a container. Who knows. Anyway, I'm on the road this week so the test lab will have to wait for Friday afternoon to restart. Keep sending the good advice, folks.

    I get fluid on top of mine after leaving it in the fridge for a week or so. Stir it up, discard some maybe, add feed it with flour/water, and ~6-8hrs later it's double or tripled in volume. Sounds to me like yours may have 'ran out of food' and collapsed (which is why it won't float and you've got fluid on top), but if you mix it well and feed it again I bet it would keep going. May be time to discard most of it and give it a big feed. Go down to 50g, feed it 100g total, something like that. That way the beaties in the 50g have plenty of food.
