Does anyone know if I could use carbonated mineral water to lower the ph when making a starter?

Hello Line Cecilie,

Possibly it will do no harm and not a lot to lose by giving it a try but once you have a starter you have it for life so there might not be much point in saving a day or two at the most. Also plain water out of the tap is much cheaper

Good luck with your projects.
