I have a question regarding my starter, day 1-3 I have good risr followed by a period of inactivity after feeding, twice daily as it is kept at room temp. Yesterday, even after feeding there was 0 activity not even a hint of rise, today I proceeded as usual and from 1 & 1/3 cup after feeding it has risen to 3 & a bit cups, the weather has been a little odd here as we are under a large weather inversion, could the barometric pressure have caused the lack of activity then sidden activity, it is the only thing I can think of that has been different from day to day. Yesterday, it was beginning to smell a little play doh-esque but today, it smells sweet and sour with hints of alcohol, I have attached photos of how it looks now. Hopefully, I'll be baking this weekend.
Thanks for reading.
