A tragic death....... one beer no bread part 2

Rate this Entry
I'm sad to report that upon rising this morning I found sour dough starter unresponsive in its
container. It was lifeless and flat. I applied immediate CPR in the form of honey 2 tablespoons
mixed in rapidly. Sourdough did not bubble or swell as it had the day before. Sourdough was declared dead at 0645 this am.

As the blog must go on. I remixed a new sour dough this time with Guinness instead of a weak oatmeal stout and planted in it a teaspoon of active yeast to help it along. I'm pleased to report that sourdough starter number 2 is alive and well and thriving.

It will be ready by Friday.

Moral of this story?

There is beer and then there is Guinness.

    Also a point of note. Start trying to catch a wild yeast in summer. As its getting colder now in my neck of the
    woods its near impossible. Hence the use of the minimal amount of yeast

    Bummer. Had a starter named HERM for about 5 yrs. May your bread always rise from the dead.

    I would save the overflowage (bubbles) and dry them on parchment paper. Then into a baggie for a rainy day when HERM was needing a boost. That still didn't keep HERM from being all dead in the end.
    Started online school and lost time to make bread once a week. That starved ol HERM. Poor HERM.
