Day two. So you may not have noticed much of a difference in the last 24 hours, but that’s okay. Again, we’re only on day two. It will probably still smell like flour and water although mine smells a little sweet. That will change soon enough I’m sure.
First thing we are going to do is look for some separation. In the picture above you can see a little liquid floating on top of the rest of the mixture. Pour off any dark liquid so that only your main mixture remains.
That is the hardest part.
Now just add one cup of flour and one cup of water into your jar. Mix together with a wooden spoon so that all of your new flour is well moistened. That’s it!
This same step is repeated over the next five days. Pour off liquid; add flour and water. It is super easy, but I will still be posting each day individually so that we can track any oddities or smells or just general experience in watching this wild yeast take hold in the starter.
See you tomorrow!
