Ryes and falls

Well, everything was going swimmingly with my first rye starter. After 24 hours it looked like this...

Lots of very promising little bubbles.

Another 12 hours later it looked like this...

Super ! I thought.

This is easy, I thought.

Pride comes before a fall and that's just what the starter did: fall, all the way back to a lifeless flour and water paste. Despite being fed for the next couple of days it stubbornly refused to come back to life.

I'll try again.
