My starter grows really well. Its at 100% hydration aand doubles within an hour of feeding. It has lots of small bubbles and foam on top.
I divided it last night and fed both halves and used one this morning. So right now I have two jars:
1. I fed after using this morning. It doubled in an hour and tripled in two and smells like what I would describe as floury, with a hint of alcohol. It has lots of mostly small bubbles with a few bigger ones at the bottom.
2. The one I fed last night, which doubled and had then fallen back by the morning. It now has an alcohol smell, its the first time I have detected this smell.
The bread I have made has had a floury taste like the smell of the starter. How do these sound?
