    I hate when I do dumb things!

    I had been busy for the last three weeks, and had been neglectful of my sourdough starter. It was a good starter, been going for a few months and had great flavour......

    Notice I’m using the past tense?

    Last night, I decided to mix the starter up well, and pour out all but a half cup, and feed it to revive it for some bread this morning.

    My wife was letting out the dog, and we were chatting while I was pouring out the starter. After I had poured it out, I ran the tap to flush it down the drain.

    Still talking to my wife, I then proceeded to run chlorinated tap water into the jar containing the remaining starter!

    *sigh*

    I suppose the new starter I got going this morning will be good to go in about a week. 🙁

    Doing two things at once can do you in. At least that is true for most of us. I can think of a lot worst things that can happen doing two things at the same time.

      I've killed off a starter (or 2) in my time. Sorry for your loss!

        Hmm... that likely won't kill all of the starter though. Much, yes. but unless your area heavily chlorinates, some should make it. If not... ouch.

          We all do dumb things. At least it happened in close proximity to your wife so you can blame her...

            That should be a sticky topic
