Okay last Saturday I made Janet's starter for the AFB and followed directions accordingly. Wednesday I added the same ingredients again (day 5) and today (day 7) when I went to stir (since I used the large bowl from the retired colander and bowl set with lid) there was TONS of dots of MOLD all around the interior of the bowl and that's all you could smell!! And we were SO looking forward to baking this up Monday :cry: :cry: What on earth could have gone wrong? Anyone? Janet - since this was your recipe can you help? Many years ago I was given a starter and transferred it from the margarine container I had to a bowl with saran wrap over it and just stirred every day except the 'do nothing' days so this time around I didn't bother with a bag, just went with the bowl again and now ... EWWW! I'm very hesitant to try again and get our hopes up for nuttin'!
