Still Confused with Starter Feeding
I started the Bahrain starter from Sourdough International which seemed to activate ok. Then after feeding 1:1:1 the starter it sort of sat and did nothing. Ed Wood suggested feeding 1cup of flour 1/2 cup of water. It took off and tripled within a 12 hours. Now after removing half the starter and left with about 1/4 cup I fed with 1/4 cup AP and 1/4 cup water but nothing happened after 18 hours.
I leave it on the counter to do its thing and check every 4 hours but nothing happens. Where did I go wrong ? Once the original starter was activated I set aside in another container, about 1/8cup which is now refrigerated. Should I forget about the container and work with the refrigerator portion.
Did I overfeed? It's warming up in SOCAL so should I put it outside and see what happens ?
I think I might be reading too much from all the various posts regarding starter issuses, but I'm sure the solution is easy - I just cant find it .
