Sourdough Starter Smells Like Acetone

Natasha Krajnc

Your starter may develop an acetone or nail polish remover smell.

Don’t be alarmed as this is completely normal, your starter is simply hungry, which is why you should feed it!

Your starter may smell like this if it is in a warm environment.

If your starter wants to be fed more than twice a day, then consider increasing its feeding ratio to 1:2:2.

To prevent your starter from eating all its food too quickly, simply use some iced water to slow it down a bit.
