My starter won't double between feeding!
I was wondering if anyone out there could help me with my starter troubleshooting? I've been at this a while trying to create and store a good starters and I've tried everything. Right now I am using Ed Woods book as help. I have a good starter it smells good and will rise but only after 4 hours or so. I can bake with it but my loaves are dense and a bit sour tasting which supposedly indicates a higher acidity level in the starter. So i followed the instructions for "washing" the culture and starting again but I still can't get the starter to rise in between feedings in a 2-4 hour period. They are bubbly and foamy but not rising? Help?
