NEWB - STARTER Question
Greetings fellow bread enthusiast! This is my first day on the site. You're comments have been helping me for a couple of years, so I finally joined. Thank you all.
I started a brand new Rye Starter.: 50gr Rye/50Gr Montana Wheat AP/50gr water.
On day two I found that the cat had spilled my [admittedly poorly placed] bag of Rye.
Therefore I had to feed with all AP on the second a.m.
I bought more Rye and made a 50/50 Rye and AP mix for the next morning.
Using - 50gr of the 50/50 mix - 50gr of previous days starter and 50gr water - My starter only rose, about a third as high as it rose yesterday with the AP only.
Should I be feeding only AP? Am I correct to keep making a Rye mix?
I live in Montana but it's a hot summer and my kitchen is 71 degrees at the time of feeding (8am).
So should I switch to AP only? Do I just need to wait it out for real activity? Should I change anything?
Thanks, again, and in advance!
