My Sour Dough Beasties had a party overnight and just couldn't hold their excitement.
This is exactly why it's important to put your container of sour dough culture on a plate if you are leaving it out of the fridge overnight. I fed it, then left it out overnight so it would multiply those beasties and I could use it the next day, which I did. The culture smelled and looked wonderful. The bread I made with it was fantastic.
Of course, I poured a little of the culture in another jar, fed it with a little flour and water, then very loosely put the lid on for the beasties to have another party and multiply. I sometimes use a crock jar, then put a plate across the top so the gasses can escape easily.
Baking bread is marvelous. There is nothing to match the wonderful aroma in the house as it is baking.
