I think my starter is ready
Hi, I started my starter about 2 weeks ago following a BBC good good food recipe which didn't seem to work. I tried to bake a loaf, it didn't rise and afterwards the starter smelt of rotten eggs! I started feeding it wholemeal flour, it went through a nail polish smell phase, but now seems to be ready.
Since the first baking attempt I have been feeding like this: 90g wholemeal flour, 90g warm water and 90g of the starter. I now have a very airy starter that seems ready to bake.
Do I now need to refresh the starter and then bake? In my first attempt I used the recipe from here: www.bakerandloaf.com/recipes/recipe-my-everyday-sourdough/
But I don't know if I will have the right amount of starter to bake with or if this is a good recipe to start off with.
Any pointers or tips would be greatly appreciated
