(5/1 ~ 5/2/16)
On Day 2 and Day 3, I basically observed for any signs of bubbling that would indicate growth of bacteria inoculated from my hands from the initial day 0/day 1. The bubbling is an important indicator of growths of microbes because it shows that there are by-products of fermentation (CO2 gas and alcohol prevalently ethanol) produced by the inoculated yeast and bacteria. The smell of the dough is very sour and rancid. When I mean sour, I don’t mean sourdough yummy sour, but more like an orange left to spoil sour. It is spreading throughout my house and I am sure my sister is not happy.
As you can see from the photos, on Day 2, there were bubbles formed and had started to dry out by the rim. On Day 3, the outer of the dough was completely dried out, but the bottom of the dough showed slight bubbling( very little T-T), but maintained its moisture. 🙂
Stay tuned for tomorrow, where I will be finally utilizing the inoculated dough!
