So I have just set my first ever sourdough starter going after years of thinking I would love to do it. After all we live of sourdough. I have it for the bread in my breakfast and my lunch, so why not make my own?\nI have no idea if it will work out cheaper in the long run, but it should work out more fun if the starter gets going that is!\nThe instructions I have read all indicate temperatures that are much warmer than anything we have here - we don't live with central heating, even though we have it. We used to live out of a tent, so are used to living in much colder condition and haven't bothered turning the heating on. Several times this winter our olive oil has been a solid lump in the bottle much too cold to tease it out, but it is currently liquid again, so I guess we stand a small chance of the sourdough starting. Anyhow, its a case of watch this space. Somehow I don't think I will be needing to feed it every 12 hours as some sites suggest, more likely every 24 hours of possibly even less until summer arrives!
