Just signed up and wanted to say greetings to you all and that this looks like it's going to be a great forum.
Don't believe in magic or miracles but I met an acquaintance on the street yesterday who asked if I could make her pure rye sourdough on a regular basis. This hit my conscience because my rye starter had been sitting at the back of the fridge for well over six months. Dug out 50g from the murky depths, refreshed it this morning, it's going like a rocket by this evening. Nearest thing to a miracle.
