Sourdough Strains?

Let's take a quick sidestep from the main discussion of Thanksgiving.

I've been taking an interest in sourdough cultures lately. I've been wanting to catch a wild strain of yeast. The other day, I put some milk and flour outside in our back yard. I left it there for a couple of days, but nothing started. Maybe I shoulda left it out longer, maybe it's too cold. I dunno.

So, I'm asking in sorta open forum, here. Anyone have any advice on how to catch a wild strain of sourdough? Anyone have a wild strain they'd be willing to share?

  1. I have recently restarted a starter from 1847 from

    It smells WONDERFUL and I have made a few loaves. Tasted fine, light as a brick.

    I think you should get one and share how to make it work in the dutch oven!
