Today I checked on my culture. It is a couple hours earlier than usually do, but since its Valentines day, I won’t be home for a few hours. For the next 5 days, I will be checking on my culture and adding flour mix into my culture and washing it with luke-warm water. Today, I saw the gas bubbles. However, it does not stink anymore, fortunately. My guess is that since a majority of the culture is still fresh, it will not smell as terrible as it did before. Not yet at least. Stay tuned and see what happens next.
