Aren't you supposed to leave the lid off too Chookie, especially when it has just been fed.

Good idea Judy,  yes.  But depends how active the starter is and how much space in jar.

We had a similar thing happen on Monday. I was building up the starter to make bread yesterday, everything was quiet and DH was having his Nanny nap and there was a very loud pop.
I keep mine in a Pyrex container with a plastic lid. Yoke warned us they may come off and suggested this.

I have 2. One in the fridge with starter in and one waiting for the next re juvination.

May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

i think that sounds like a good idea to have a container with a bit of give. Will try that next time,  it all went up the window and very hard to get rid of the yeasty smell!

On Paul Hollywood's programme he was raving about his recipe a sourdough with white chocolate and fresh ( not frozen)  raspberries

http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/white_chocolate_and_89452

And he said that it made the best summer pudding EVER http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/summer_pudding_with_98588

Just thought you might want to experiment?

I was very privileged to be able to adopt some of chookies starter on Sunday and here is my first attempt. Not perfect as it got stuck on the glad wrap and I had no idea of how long to cook it for. But I am pleased it rose well overnight. It's a work in progress. Think I will use a round casserole dish next time. Thanks again chookie.

Kim,  the texture looks really good.  If it stuck to the glad wrap then it must have risen well.  If you use a covered pot,  don't forget to spray the underside of the lid.  Thanks for posting the photo. 
After looking at the lolly pops that you made for Sunday,  it just confirmed what I already suspected,  that you are an excellent cook.

Thanks chookie.  Couldn't have done it without your super starter :)
