WHAT'S THAT SOUR SMELL?!

Take a look at my culture. There is a significantly higher number of gas bubbles forming! Another noticeably different thing about my culture today is that it smells extremely sour. It had a familiar smell of beer or vinegar. Surprisingly, the best way to describe the smell is to think back to when you once bit into a piece of sourdough bread. It has that same distinct taste and smell, but five times stronger.

Surprisingly enough, my culture is growing. This is due to budding. For those that don’t know yeasts are unicellular living organisms and like all living organisms, they reproduce through budding.
