Sour Dough Starter

Is this list exclusively for bread machine users?  The list description
did not indicate this.

My question concerns sour dough bread.  I have a recipe that uses an
non-flour starter.  When feeding the starter, you add sugar and potato
flakes (instant potato), but no flour.  The bread was delicious, if a 
bit sweet.We found that less sugar produced a loaf that rose beautifully 
and was not too sweet.  Unfortunately, my son dropped the jar of 
starter and broke the jar. I would love to be able to make this 
wonderful bread again.  Any suggestions?
