Hi guys, long time no speak
I have been trying to get a starter going according to Dan Lepards recipe (The Handmade Loaf)
I have a concern that it isnt coming along correctly
I didnt have any raisins or currants in the pantry, but I did have some sultanas. Has anyone used these succesfully?
I am into day 5 of the recipe and whilst I havent had a consistent 20 degrees I have had more than 18 all the time and upto 25 at other time
Last night was the remove 3/4 of the starter and strain out the raisins + add 100grms of water and 125 grams of strong white flower and while it only showed marginal signs of bubbles/pin pricks I prceeded anyway
This morning I had a sticky and there are a few holes in the mix but nowhere near as many as in the pics in the recipe
Should I ditch it and try with some raisins/currants or leave it and see if its just a late bloomer
