Should my sourdough starter smell like awful vomit?

Charles asks…

Sourdough bread disaster?

I made a sourdough bread from an amish friendship bread starter…I followed all directions exactly, except i formed my loaves in 2 large loaf pans instead of three standard. I increased the cook time from 40 mins to 70 mins to accomodate for the extra thickness…I actually even added on another 15 mins because the first loaf seemed doughy when I checked it…So, now, the bread is fully cooked but seems very dense and doughy in places. What is wrong with it, and is it safe to eat?

sourdough answers:

It is fine to eat, but the texture may be a little different than expected. It really is better to use 3 standard pans, rather than 2 large. I am speaking from personal experience. Go ahead and eat it though, it should taste just fine. Good luck!
