...try, try again

Well I tried again on the sourdough bread, and I failed miserably. I used more flour and sea salt and it looked a heck of a lot better, but still did not rise. But I thought maybe I should bake it anyways, maybe it did rise and I just didn't notice. So after baking for 30 minutes it did smell very much like sourdough bread, and I thought ok... maybe this is what is supposed to look like.... and then I took it out of the oven. It must have weighed like 15 pounds... and it was anything but edible. So needless to say, I threw out the starter and am going to move onto some other, less intense recipes. Here is a picture of my sourdough brick!
