Default Re: I think my sourdough starter died! :(

Yes, Yorrick lives! That is such a comforting thought - it is the same yeasties doing the work after all.

Here it is, back again (on the second try - the first landed in the bin again), but not too bad considering its still developing its full strength.

I really missed Yorrick! Turns out I only really fire up the oven for bread baking, and then add the pizza as an afterthought. And it turns out that apparently for me "proper" bread is made with a sourdough starter - not any concoction made with commercial yeast. So until Yorrick recovered my family got no pizza and no home baked bread... pretty tough, huh?
