Sure a lot of cultures have been started with bread yeast in them, but they aren't "true sourdough" cultures. The bread yeast dies off eventually in the presence of the Lactobacillus and acid...

Great info everybody! You can revive a culture that goes bad and makes lots of hooch by "washing" it, diluting until there are few beasties left then building it back up. I've had to do this too. You...

Well I got them on Amazon and they don't have instructions beyond dosing. From hunting around it looks like they are just sugar. That's why I asked about adding yeast, although I am still not 100%...

One more quick question...if I use the carbonation drops, do I also need to add yeast? If so then how do I do that? Maker a starter then add a drop or whatever to the bottles? Does it matter how much...
