Some day I'll work up the gumption to do a sourdough starter. Apparently it stinks to high heaven, but goddamn it would be worth it...

I have never had a new sourdough starter get more than mildly funky. If it's stinking, you aren't discarding and feeding often enough. Do it twice a day, and the funk won't be strong and it won't last more than a week.
