I want to share the condition of the two starters at hour 48. Since I want a strong non wussy starter i starved both of them until last night. I am trying to make sure they want to live instead of me feeding something that doesn't care if it lives or not.
The honey/ better 4 bread (b4b) starter smelled like a light alcohol but the majority of the smell was honey.
The honey/ cheerios/ b4b starter smelled a little heavier alcohol and oats. It reminded me a of a heavy dark German beer.
The cheerios starter was quite a bit thinner than the b4b starter. The b4b starter looked like a giant rubber band, trying to remove half of it from the jar.
These pictures are from the 48 hour mark, before feeding for the first time.
Oh, the b4b/honey starter already floats.
