@genmon is that your sourdough in the second image?
@meena yeah, I needed to build it up to have enough for this bake, and underestimated how much it would expand when active... I need a bigger jar!
@genmon mine's in a 1l jar
but i'm currently unhappy with
the top goes all hard
@meena pics! (Why does the top go hard? I'm new to starters, still figuring it all out)
@genmon this is it:
@meena tasty! What flour do you use? Do you know why it’s drying out?
and i think it's drying out because of the temperature fluctuations i've been exposing it to
but the bigger issue is that it's started to form mold on top of the jar — i believe the temperature fluctuations may also be to blame for this
so i'm gonna have to start over.
@meena boooooo. Good tip on temp changes, I'll have to watch out as I move it in and out of the fridge a bunch
