Round two of the potato starter was looking really good, bubbling up a storm every time I fed it. Then it fizzled. I really don't know what happened.
Yesterday there was almost no bubbling to the start after feeding, so I gave it a tablespoon of sugar for a treat. That got some bubbles going. The bread turned out ok, but somewhat moister and flatter than it has been.
This start is still living on the table in a bowl too. I'm finding it easier to manage (and remember to use) than the ones that were tucked into the cupboard. Of course, the temperatures have risen outside, so keeping it warm isn't as much of a chore either.
