THIS IS THE STARTER AND YOU CAN NOW START MAKING BREAD


Keeping your Starter in the fridge

If you keep your starter in the fridge you will have to feed it every 5-7 days.

This is how you feed your starter…
Take it out of the fridge & then discard 400g of the starter. You will then need to feed the starter with 200g flour & 200g water, make sure to mix it well and clean the sides of the container. Once you have done this pop the lid back on & leave at room temp for 4hrs to get stronger.

After 4hrs the starter will be ready to use to make sourdough bread.

Keeping your Starter at room temperature

If you plan on using your starter every day like in a commercial kitchen, you will need to feed it when you take out the starter to make your sourdough bread. To do this take 300g starter out to make your bread & discard another 100g. This will leave you with 200g starter in the container, you will then need to feed the starter 200g flour & 200g water. Mix it well, clean the sides of container, place the lid on & then place it on the kitchen side till the next day. You will need to do this every day to keep the starter alive.
