I think I may spend a little while tonight looking up what a finished sourdough starter is supposed to look like. Not that I think my starter isn’t progressing, I just can’t tell if this thing is going to be ready after tomorrow’s last step. I will share what I come up with. We may all be at different stages anyway since we don’t all live in the same place. Maybe yours is more bubbly than mine or perhaps yours has more extra liquid. Everyone’s will look a little different anyhow.
Today my starter has half the extra liquid floating on top as it did yesterday. What that means, if anything, I don’t know. There are quite a few bubbles and it smells as sour as ever so I couldn’t be too far off, right?!
Let’s add our one cup of flour and one cup of cold water. Remember that you can use any combination of flours if you rather use whole wheat or something else. I just happened to buy six 5-pound bags of all-purpose flour on sale for 50 cents each so I’m going to be baking bargain bread in a few days. Use whatever you have!
See you tomorrow for our (hopefully) last additions.
