This turned out great for me. Made my first 2 loaves of bread this morning, and man the smell is heavenly. This is exactly like the started I had many years ago, and so glad to get back into the bread out hips!

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.
