Thanks Eileen.  I used to make sourdough a lot years ago and then stopped for some reason, only just started doing it again about a month ago.  So far I've made 3 loaves from the starter, they've all been very good, somewhat to my surprise!  They haven't yet got the full sourdough tang, but that becomes more pronounced as the starter ages.  Sorry to hear you've got a wheat allergy....I have a wheat intolerance which is more of a problem if I'm going through a stressful period or my health is a bit below par.  That's one of the reasons I started the sourdough again....I tolerate it much better.  Not tried it with GF flour though, I have no idea if it would work.  Why don't you give it a go?

Chocolate Victoria sponge. First half in the halogen, second to do! 

I also used to make sourdough bread and loved it! Might just get another started.
