French Buttermilk Starter
I had some leftover buttermilk so I decided to make a starter using Beth Hensperger's recipe from The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook and being a newbie to baking, I need some help.
First, she gives instructions for a first feeding after 36 hours but does not indicate how often to feed it after that. From what's know of starters, they need to be fed at least once a day. What do y'all think?
Second, I'd prefer to make something by hand instead of using Beth's recipe for the bread machine. Can I just use this as I would any other starter in a sourdough bread recipe?
