Comment on Gluten-Free Sourdough Starter by Kas.

maybe it’s the jar? They are too big and the glass is quite thick. They are glass storage jars about 21cm tall 10cm diameter. I have moved it to a smaller jar 17cm x 10cm but same thickness of glass, but still nothing after starting over with a small amount of starter. I have put it in the microwave so let’s see if that helps. Otherwise I will take it down to a smaller jar. I don’t have any jars sizes like yours Chantal until I eat the pickles!
Also what to you do with the discard if you can’t use it straight away.
I baked in Dutch oven for half time.
I just think the starter wasn’t happy enough.

It seems to like it in the microwave it’s looking a little more fluffy.
I will try warm water.
Can you bake sourdough in a rectangle loaf tin? Glass or metal?

First batch of sorghum starter got mould in it day 2. I was doing a lot of cooking that day and it was near the oven. Started again and put further away from oven.
Day 6 no bubbling or growth.
Day 7 no bubbling or growth.
Day 8 one or two bubbles but no growth.
Day 9 not much happening to it still so I put it in fridge as wasn’t going to around for then next few days.
I got out to bake a few days later.
Fed it and left left it for more than half the day. 1 bubble popped up.
Decided to bake sourdough bread anyway with it.
Bread was the best gluten free bread I have had consistency wise very dense didn’t crumble but did not rise much more in the bowl with the tea towel or in the oven so was quite heavy and dense. The cuts I made barely expanded. But the hubby liked it and actually could eat it without toasting but getting through crust needed a saw.
Kind of like a soft biscotti.
Hoping to get my starter more frothy somehow.
Starter has been out of fridge 2 days now and is being fed but not much going on.

Buckwheat Sourdough Loaf Gluten-Free Vegan
Every day that I had mixed it there was no difference in the colour, it was all uniformed. This time I noticed that when I did the first mix it was noticeable that the top was a greenish colour when compared to the rest of the mix. There was a swirl of a different colour.

I think my sorghum starter has again gone mouldy. I put all the dry ingredients into the bowl reached for the starter mixed it and noticed a very pale green tinge of colour as the top mixed in. Smells ok but a bit hesitant. I still don’t think it’s fluffy enough still. Maybe I should try the rice starter. It’s like grainy beach mud.
Can I add yeast to this recipe and how much as I have all the dry ingredients in the bowl ready to go? And I don’t want to wait 7 days as I start my new starter.
