Won't this just produce a sour dough starter from captured airborne yeast spores? Sour dough bread is an acquired taste. It's truly delicious and has a unique texture, but it's not suitable for every purpose. I really like the idea of capturing your very own unique, local yeast spores. I don't believe there is any live yeast left in the bread slices. Thanks for promoting baking.
