Sourdough starter: day four

Well it's all go today in the Pantry; a full day at work, and an evening catching up with a good friend meant that I completely forgot to feed baby starter, also leaving it uncovered for a few hours. To say I was concerned is an understatement and feeding was the first thing I did when I came in.

Sadly I think this may have ballsed things up (it's a technical term) as it looks nothing like either of the photos at Baker and Loaf it's much thicker, and slightly lumpy. That said, when I stirred the flour and water in today it definitely smelled yeasty and there are big bubbles all the way through - much like a small quantity of bread dough - so there's still hope. Fingers and toes are all crossed in the Pantry for a successful starter.

I love eating sour dough bread but the thought of having "someone" else to look after puts me off it! One day I'll manage it!
