I started this several days ago and have used it in recipes twice since - to great success! I wouldn't say that mine tastes "sour" - it smells more beery than tangy. But as far as starters go it seems easy to maintain, and it works very well with a wonderful flavour. I like that it had no flour so that I can add it to recipes without having to do heavy calculations. I just replace for part of the liquid and away we go! Thank you for posting this easy starter.
