It came out just fine for me. There are different kinds of sour dough bread, and although this one doesn't taste like others I have had, it still tastes like sour dough bread and I am completely satisfied with it. Extremely easy to use. Just put in the flour, water, and the enclosed packet of yeast. I use a bread machine. After putting in the ingredients, I just turn on the machine. I'd suggest that other people try it out. Tastes aren't exactly the same from one person to the next, and to explain a difference or flavor on a keyboard is hard to do. Try it out. The price is more than reasonable. For those who know how traditional sour dough is made, they know how time consuming it is. This one is quick and easy. I spread on some Fleischmans Olive Oil spread which I also like, and the taste is wonderful. Like I said though, everyone tastes things differently. I'll continue using it, and suggest others try it out.
