Default yeast/bacteria balance

That's what I'd read in Peter Reinhart's Bread Baker's Apprentice and ...
somewhere else as well. In any case, it seems to be a sourdough urban
legend, given what everyone has written.

In any case, I like the two I started up (one whole wheat, the other rye)
just fine. :-)

manages to keep them all different? From Tasmania, Italy, France and San

What you do with your starter will be more important than it's innate
potential or flavour. I have all but one of Ed's starters ( sent by a
friend, I'm not mad. lol) They really are different to each other given
exactly the same treatment. They all can be both mild and sour depending on
what I do.
