When am I ready to bake.


OK, I have been feeding and disgarding for 4 days. My starter just about doubles in size each day before throwing half of it  away.. How much groth should I expexct before it is ready to use?


Thank you

Hello Bones,

Sounds to me as if you have lift-off.  I'd try a simple loaf such as SourDom's Pane Francesa (see his beginners blog).

You should make it a number of times to get your technique right and don't be disheartened if the first couple/few are not up to expectations. 

Let us know how you go.
