Since 2016

I've gotten into fermentation this past year, and have been baking bread for over 30 years. Finally decided to try making a sourdough (also because I'd read that even if you have gluten sensitivities, sourdough is sometimes tolerated)

Characteristics

She's still young (only started mid-August, 2016), so she's still developing her personality, but so far she's resilient and amenable/easy to work with. She's a strong starter, quite thick when I stir her when she comes out for her feeding. :)
