Hi guys, here is a sourdough starter, a facebook page I follow posted.

Wild Yeast Sourdough Starter




http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/233/wild-yeast-sourdough-starter

Day 1: mix...
2 T. whole grain flour (rye and/or wheat)
2 T. unsweetened pineapple juice or orange juice
Cover and let sit at room temperature for 24 hours.

Day 2: add...
2 T. whole grain flour
2 T. juice
Stir well, cover and let sit at room temperature 24 hours. At day 2 you may (or may not) start to see some small bubbles.

Day 3: add...
2 T. whole grain flour
2 T. juice
Stir well, cover and let sit at room temperature 24 hours.


Starter at Day 3:

Day 4:
Stir down, measure out 1/4 cup and discard the rest.
To the 1/4 cup add...
1/4 cup flour*
1/4 cup filtered or spring water

*You can feed the starter whatever type of flour you want at this point (unbleached white, whole wheat, rye). If you are new to sourdough, a white starter is probably the best choice. All-purpose flour is fine--a high protein flour is not necessary.

Repeat Day 4:
Once daily until the mixture starts to expand and smell yeasty. It is not unusual for the mixture to get very bubbly around Day 3 or 4 and then go completely flat and appear dead. If the mixture does not start to grow again by Day 6, add 1/4 tsp. apple cider vinegar with the daily feeding. This will lower the pH level a bit more and it should wake up the yeast.

Starter at Day 7:


Be prepared! It may be time....^_^v

I did much the same using some freshly ground wholemeal flour, about 2 cups, and some sugar, a couple of tablespoons, and the some water. I whisked it by hand until like a pancake batter and left it on the kitchen table to do its thing. 

By the way, I kept mine in a pottery casserole dish with a lid that I picked up at a charity shop for $3. It was perfect for it, and looked nice. I found I had to keep mine on the kitchen table or else I forgot to feed it. 
If it is to be, it is up to me.

Thanks for the info, KiwiMum. I wanted to try making it, but I was worried that the juice might affect the taste. I'll try it with sugar first.
