Excellent, Robust

I had no issues getting this starter activated and am now drowning in endless massive quantities of delicious tangy starter, which has gone into loaf bread, naan, waffles, cornbread, etc, etc. My only problem is just how much starter there is! It's tasty, no doubt.

I grew up in the San Fran area eating sour dough. This starter produces a bread with the proper flavor! Love it.
