Seed Culture: Day 2

Hi everyone.  I changed what my blog looks like.  I hated the other layout.  It was too skinny.  Anyway, I have a lot of reading to do.  I'm trying to actually work, like a grad student is supposed to.  Check it, though.  Here is Day 1 on Day 2:

More pasty.  Like me in the winter.  So, bread flour + more pineapple juice + Day 1 Stuff =

Ice cream!  J/k.  Hahahahaha.  I am so funny.

Once again, we wait for 24 hours.  See you then.  Sorry these entries are boring.  I can quote you some text about the history of the United States border patrol, if you'd prefer.

Seed Culture: Day 1

AH.  Hello lovelies.  It's been entirely too long.  If you're wondering WHY this is so, basically, I have a life.  Also, I am currently stuck at the barm stage of things, which a) takes forever b) produces no immediate results and c) takes forever.  I've tried to make it about five months ago, or whatever, but here's attempt number three (?!).  I'm hoping b/c it's the summer, and my apt is hotter, it'll work.  Let's find out together!

So, here goes the chronicle of your lifetime.  We start with developing a seed culture:

This is dark rye flour + pineapple juice (I know.  WTF.  What did bread bakers do before the West colonized pineapple-growing areas of the world?) and it sits out for 24 hours.  Rotten pineapple juice, basically.

See you tomorrow!  <3
