I am preparing a sourdough culture (Servant (I work at a gov org) here at work to encourage people into this craft.
I bought an organic white flour from Woolies (Macro brand) and mixed it with my organic whole wheat flour and started the process in a glass jar using filtered tap water from the filter. Started with 2 days of home made apple cider vinegar and continued with water only.
Office is temp controlled about 24C and the water I am using is warm.
It has been 11 days and Servant fed everyday. Altough there are bubbles visible; they are ant's head size. Servant somewhat doubles in size but it does not seem active enough. Servant also took time to get this level of activity, only on the last 3 days (when I have added some fresh honey), I am seeing bubbles.
Apart from being in a gov org and named Servant, I dont see any reason for it to be sluggish. what would you recommend to get it more active? should I add some egg white or honey?
The picture below is after I fed it this morning about 7am and 2 hours of activity.
