Ryan my rye sourdough starter.

I've started my third pineapple juice and flour starter. The first two are successful. So successful in fact that I plan on passing on Perry, my Carp Lake sourdough from my husband's family's cottage in Michigan to family some day when I die.

Anyway, I wanted to start an all rye sourdough starter for rye and multigrain breads. The problem is, it's day 5 and I thought Ryan was alive but now he just sits there. Anybody have any ideas on how to "perk Ryan up"?

What are you feeding it? Every starter needs to be fed.

Ryan just sounded like a cute name for a rye sourdough starter. He'll be used primarily for rye and multigrain breads. I started him with equal parts pineapple juice and rye flour for two days and now he is supposed to have once a day feedings of equal parts (rye in my case) flour and filtered water. If you look up Noreen's Kitchen on YouTube she has an awesome playlist filled with how to sourdough and recipes.

I would never have thought to name a started. Nice touch.

Good news! Ryan woke up on his own. I just needed to wait a little longer. I can hardly wait to start baking my first sourdough rye 😍👏

Have to name it to explain why you take so much time with it. Mine is Audrey II.
