Personal Notes:
With this recipe you are "grabbing" wild yeast from the air in your home. You can start out with a package of baking yeast if you would like, adding it to the sugar, flour and milk at the beginning of the process. Discard batter if it takes on a "purple" color or has an off odor. Remember this is a sour dough starter, so there will be a natural sour odor.
