A Witch’s brew? Second attempt on the Mother

After the Mother perished yesterday, the baker other half began his mission searching for more promising starter recipes.  When I came home today, he has set up the experiment.  While I looked at him funny, I went along with the science project.  Here are some pictures of the Witch’s brew:

Potato is rich is starch, along with honey as natural sugar; this mixture hopefully will capture wild yeast.
