Recently I bought some starter from the local grocery-store bakery.  It
turned out not to be starter at all, but some kind of sour powder.  I then
noticed some packages of commercially produced sourdough bread contain
ingredients such as lactic acid, etc.   Probably going to Safeway bakery
or something like that, you can discover the powder.  I haven't used it,
but I still have it--it might make a good film developer.
