Feeding Your Starter:

  1. Feed Daily: For the first week, feed your starter daily to help it grow strong.

    • Ingredients:
      • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (or any flour of your choice)
      • 1/2 cup water (filtered or non-chlorinated)
  2. Mix Well: Add the flour and water to your starter. Stir until well combined. The consistency should be similar to thick pancake batter.

  3. Cover Loosely: Cover the jar with a breathable cloth or loosely fitted lid to allow air circulation while keeping dust and insects out.

  4. Room Temperature: Keep your starter at room temperature (68-75°F or 20-24°C) for the first week to promote fermentation.

Ongoing Maintenance:

  1. Refrigeration: After the first week, you can store your starter in the refrigerator to slow down the fermentation process.

    • Weekly Feeding: Feed your starter once a week if stored in the refrigerator.
      • Remove the starter from the refrigerator.
      • Discard half of the starter.
      • Add 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup water.
      • Stir well and let it sit at room temperature for a few hours before returning it to the refrigerator.
  2. Active Use: If you plan to bake frequently, you can keep your starter at room temperature and feed it daily.

    • Daily Feeding: Follow the same process as the initial daily feeding.

Reviving a Dormant Starter:

  1. Remove from Refrigerator: Take the starter out of the refrigerator.
  2. Feed Twice Daily: Feed the starter twice daily for 2-3 days until it becomes bubbly and active again.
    • Morning: Discard half of the starter, add 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup water, and mix well.
    • Evening: Repeat the feeding process.

Troubleshooting:

  • Hooch: A layer of liquid (hooch) may form on top if the starter is hungry. Pour it off or stir it back in before feeding.
  • Mold: If you see mold, discard the starter and begin with a fresh one. Mold typically appears as fuzzy spots in various colors.

By following these care instructions, your sourdough starter will remain healthy and ready to create delicious, tangy sourdough bread and other baked goods. Enjoy your baking!
