I know there are many posts about starter troubleshooting, but it’s hard to troubleshoot with my own following other’s posts… I want to know if this looks OK? It’s 2 weeks old today. It bubbles and rises but never doubles. Sometimes it smells like acetone in the morning. I’m only doing 1 feed every 24 hrs since it’s not doubling. Here is a photo I took just now. 7 hours after feed. I did 1:2:2 with 40/80/80. Filtered water at room temp. Bread and whole wheat flour combo. @Abe I’ve seen you helping so many others and would appreciate your guidance if you have time. Thank you 6 posts - 2 par ..read more

I bought a dehydrated sourdough starter off of etsy because i was not having luck making my own (probably something I messed up). The starter was a small amount about a teaspoon worth and instructions that came with it was to add 1table each of water and flour for the first feeding and i did that last night. Within like a couple of hours it had a bumch of bubbles and smelled of alcohol. I did my second feeding which was also 1table each of water and flour and within a couple of hours still smells of alochol and it is now 6 hours past and i think it has doubled? Its a still a small amount so it ..read more

Sourdough Starter Smelling Weird

I have an around 2 month old starter that I keep out and feed daily, but today when I fed it, it smelled odd. It smelled almost savory? Similar to salsa. It doesn’t look any different, no signs of mold. I was just wondering if anyone knew what’s causing this and if I should be concerned. 3 posts - 2 participants Read full topic ..read more

Looking for some guidance on getting my starter up and running. I have done a fair amount of reading here and found great information. I feel like im just now putting that all together. I have a 15 day old starter. I have used a 1:1:1 ratio so far using grams to measure. I am using home milled flour made from einkorn berries. I have a gluten intolerance and have avoided wheat for the last 2 years. Im hoping this form will be tolerable. The first week i used tap water. I do have a whole house carbon filter with water softener for what thats worth. I experience the typical 3rd day rise and fall ..read more

Black Sesame Potato Sourdough Braided Milk Buns
Breadtopia Forum

I thought I’d try something a bit different both in the dough as well as the shaping for these buns. We are going to have fish burgers tonight so wanted buns for them. The braiding was somewhat successful but could be better since this was my first time trying this. A slightly lower hydration would have helped this immensely, but ensuring a bit more flour on the dough when making the knots. The excess hydration was due to the egg being 11 g too heavy. Next time I’d beat the egg and then add the correct amount. But overall I’m pretty happy with this first attempt. They are almost like kaiser ro ..read more
