After the first day of activation of my ischia starter I noticed a strong smell coming from the starter, yeah it was pretty strong, but
by the third day it was gone. It's been over a week now and it doesn't smell if its cold, but when I leave it out for a while it does have and little bit of a tangy smell to it, but no where near the initial activation. Is this normal or should I throw it out and start over? Oh yeah I heard you can rinse it if necessary, but that sounds a little iffie.
