Evening all. What beautiful sunshine today - didn't get ironing done but my garden
is looking pretty good.
I need some help with my starter. I put my 2 cups of freshly milled wholewheat flour and 2 cups of spring (bottled) still
water into my glass bowl, covered it with cheesecloth and put it into an open shed (wood shed) for a day. It was
out of the sun but warmish.
I bought it in and it has been standing on my tv (much to my hubby's delight - not!!
) for the last 4 days. I live
in the Adelaide Hills and it isn't really hot but mild weather. We have a combustion fire going every night still.
Nothing has happened at all
and I am wondering what I should have done.
I have read somewhere about putting honey into the starter for the wild yeasts to enjoy, how much though?
Should I leave it outside or inside?
I am going to keep trying until I capture the little blighters!!
Hope someone can help me in this matter. Also, I did ask about 'well' water. Basically it is spring water in a well. Would
that hurt or not???
