Sourdough Starter - Loosey Goosey Approach

I do not measure. I go on vacation. Here's how I started and now maintain my happy, healthy, bubbly starter. And no, I am not raising it to be independent and go to college. The starter is a productive pet.

Hi Sheryl,

Love your blog.  Must spend some more time there.

You are right about the fact that there is no absolute need for precision but some people do struggle a bit, particularly in the early stages, with the look and feel of it all.  The descriptions in some manuals are not particularly clear and I have found that working with some degree of accuracy can remove some of the variability for somebody who is going it alone.  If you are working with someone - a parent, baker, teacher etc then the need for early precision is more easily by-passed.  As people become more experienced and confident with the process, then they can stick with the accurate approach if that is their wont or they can go goosey-loosey,

Good luck with your projects.
