Making Sourdough Starter
It generally takes around 2 - 3 weeks to cultivate a reliably fermenting starter (called 'active' starter). Starters usually become stronger and more reliable over time.
The process of making starter only requires flour, water and a mixing/storage vessel. One of the best methods is provided here, by SourDom.
Mixing flour and water together encourages natural yeast and bacteria to ferment. It is a very simple concept and very satisfying process.
