Day five. Two more days to go.
Have you been sniffing your starter? I have. It smells like sourdough bread but stronger. Much stronger! But it still smells eerily good. It’s like smelling future loaves of warm fresh baked bread. Today my sourdough starter looked a lot like it did yesterday. About 3/4 of an inch of yellow liquid (I have a gallon-sized jar, if yours is smaller it may appear that you have more) with a few bubbles on top. When I pour off the liquid it seems fairly thick.
Today just pour off your extra liquid carefully, add one cup of flour, and one cup of water. I try and work on my starter at the same time every day. I don’t know if it makes a huge difference and it’s not like I time it to the second, but it probably helps to give it a good 24-hours.
Let me know how your starters are going and what day you are on.
It’s the first of the month… rabbit rabbit white rabbit! (I’m a little superstitious)
