This starter really does do the trick. Like another reviewer, I've visited all the sites and learned of all the failures. Poppycock. This is just great and doesn't suck up your life. The brown liquid on top is called hooch and I bet it would knock your socks off if you drank it:-) I found this to be very forgiving and haven't fed it every single day, yet it does the trick. The first batch of bread was excellent, even if it wasn't sour--the consistency was fantastic. Since all starters will taste different depending on where you live and the yeast in the air, I keep mine covered with a very clean wash cloth and secure it in place with a rubber band so yeast in the air can get in. We also use 1/2 white whole wheat flour because it has more natural yeast. If stored in the refrigerator, let the starter sit out until room temperature before using. This starter will be willed to my daughter when I leave this world. It's that good.
