Making a Sourdough Starter from scratch, third refreshment
Now its the evening and my starter is doing well- I hope yours is too. As it develops I begin to be able to smell more of the characteristic sour smell
Now its ready to be refreshed again. So, you just need to do exactly what you did to refresh it this morning.
1. Discard 2/3 of it (or find a deserving friend to give it to)
2. Add 1/4 cup of water and 1/2 cup of white bread flour
3. Stir until all the flour is hydrated
4. Cover with the lid, but don’t screw it on
Thats it – nothing more to do. Just leave it all night and then refresh again tomorrow morning
I’m going to keep going refreshing it morning and night for another couple of days- and I would think by then it will be ready to use for bread making.
So I’ll post again then.
