Since 2018

I starter working from home in August 2018 of last year. I got quite bored and wanted to pick up a new hobby. I always enjoyed baking so I tried making bread one day and succeeded. Then I went full on and dove into sourdough. It wasn't until I actually understood the science behind sourdough that I learned about all of the health benefits.

Characteristics

My starter is quite dependable and survives even in the cold temperatures of my kitchen. Depending on what type of flour I feed it, it can either be soupy or thick. The smell varies a bit from sweet and tangy when I feed it white flour to more like alcohol when it's fed with whole grain flour.
