Sourdough starter: Day three

Day three and there are loads of bubbles. When you peel off the cling film I can definitely smell the yeasty sweetness that I associate with a starter or leaven. I'm starting to get slightly excited at the prospect of sourdough next week.

I haven't caved and bought the bannetones yet, but it's payday Friday so maybe then. I do think, if you're doing this and at all nervous then digital scales would be sooooo much easier. I'm finding with the water specifically that I'm getting more than a bit frustrated with the small quantities. But I'm nothing if not tenacious, determined (and maybe just a bit stubborn) so I shall continue on.

Still tweeting at #sourdoughtweetalong, still following instructions from Baker and Loaf. Mine's a bit more like the first picture of their's today.

And with that, I'm off to Guides. Did I mention we're looking for leaders? Did I? Have you had a look here yet? You really should.
