I tried unsuccessfully to get Carl's starter going a while back, but only a small amount according to one of the sets of direction on his site.. It did NOTHING!!! Not sure why, but it just sat there. Now I tried again with the rest and it it went nuts in the small jar I started it in. I transferred it to a bowl and added more water, and flour, plus sugar and potato powder and put it in the oven with a damp towel over it with the light on according to other directions on the site. It got bubbly and now has a clear liquid layer over it (alcohol?) and a hard crusty layer on top of that (?). It smells sour, but not bad sour... The house has an odor to it.... I stirred it up again and pulled it out of the oven and transferred it to a plastic container to use in the fridge. I have it on the counter in the kitchen right now around 70* Does this sound like it is going well?
