Since 2018

Always loved bread, used to have a starter but was not so much into baking at that time. Due to moving and time it didn't make it to the new house. After buying (very bad) bread for a couple of weeks we decided to start baking again. I read on how to start a culture and gave it a go.

Characteristics

The starter was build on the 2nd of may 2018, so is pretty young. Until it peaks it smells very sweet, like oven baked apples. When it starts to fall the acidity increases and the start passes trough a more sour fruity stage like red berries or wild cherries, until it becomes vinegary.
