Hi, newbie first attempt:
Fresh ground flours, super pure filtered water, ambient temp 70 degress F., mix 50:50 by volume so about like pancake batter.
Started with rye flour. First bubbles at 24 hours so fed it. In next 5-6 hours much more than doubled in size! So fed it again and in another 4-5 hours 2 1/2 - 3 times size increase...Repeat several times. Then switched to kamut flour (what I wanted to end up with) and same explosive growth.
Decided in part for convenience but more to push development of sourness (since still very little in evidence) I cut way back on the water at next feeding and made it about consistency of yogurt. And...nothing, zero activity after 24 hours so fed it again and still nothing. So after 12 more hours fed it with rye again and last night again with rye and this morning...still nothing.
Wha happen'd? Any suggestions gratefully accepted!
