Ok I started a starter a couple of weeks ago, "George" was doing very good a few days ago more than doubling, but now not even a quater, he is rising maybe a half inch above the mark on the jar. George is a rye starter, home ground with filtered water. I really want to make bread but I am afraid George isn't up to it right now. For feedings i have been keeping 1/4 of a cup and adding 1/4 cup of water and 1/4 + cup of flour to make pancake batter consistancy. What can I do to get George to perk up?
