3de starter was made with organic flour ( wholewheat ), 68 hours in
the process, it smells sour, but a bit too sour.. like milk that's a
little too old..is this still a " right " smell ? Although i guess
it's a little hard to judge a smell over a networkcabel..if mix it al
little the smell gets less strong..

room temp is between 60f-75f

should i use this starter ?


Hi Sven,

Sure, but...

You are likely to get far better results if you continue to
feed it through many cycles before baking with it.

All the best,


thank you

Beer and chocolate on the way ( for the starter )

have a nice day
