My bread section has mostly sourdough this or sourdough that.
I do like my sourdough pancakes, bread, biscuits, rolls, you name it, so I will start with the starter.
The starter will smell kinda like a yeasty-stale beer.
Always use ceramic, glass, or crocks to mix and store sourdough in.
Do not use metal spoons or bowls.
Do not put anything in your starter but flour, water, and sometimes sugar.
