I have been following the fantastic sourdough starter tutorial on this website and i am currently on day 5 and all is looking on track! there are a few things that are confusing me and was hoping someone could help me out. here goes...
After day 7 do i keep taking half away and refreshing with another 100ml/g of flour/water everyday? as i have read its best to wait 14 days before baking with the starter.
I am planning to keep mine in the fridge and feed every 5 days or so, but do i 'feed' or 'refresh'? (this is if im not planning to use, just keep lively, i understand the starter needs refreshing 24 hours before use if kept in the fridge)
If i want to bake with my refridgerated starter do i refresh the whole thing 24 hours before or just the amount of starter i need for my bread?
I am a regular home baker but sourdough novice! any guidance would be great! i will add a link to my blogpost that has pics of my starter.
thank you for your fabulous website too it is now my sourdough bible!!!!
