New to Sourdough baking and searching around on the Internet has not led me to the answer that I am seeking, so hopefully someone can assist.
I created my starter last Monday - Oct 21st - it's now 10-26 and there has been no rising. There has been plenty of activity - bubbles, etc, but no rise. I started to feed it every 12 hours instead of every 24 probably around the 3-4 day mark.
There always seems to be a light colored liquid on the top of it - not dark like described in many posts.
Some additional discovery shows on my part after checking the actual bag of flour, that I used BLEACHED All Purpose Flour.
Now my question is, do I continue with the starter, feeding it unbleached and hope for the best, or should I discard and start a new one?
Any help would be appreciated!
