I wanted to make a Russian rye bread. I found a recipe on yourtube that was labeled sourdough rye and I picked that recipe without realizing it asked for a starter. Once I completed the recipe I had a living starter, I should have known since the recipe took a week to prepare but the whole world of sourdough was still completely new to me.
It can get sour fast probably because of how hot my house is. The starter is active after only one feeding out of the fridge the starter rises predictably. The colors change if I allow the starter to sit out for too long without feeding, turns a darker brownish color.
