Help with activating dry starter

January 7, 2013 - 1:40pm -- tnjoann

I am brand new to sourdough..... well I had a starter years ago but it was given by a friend and I just had to feed it.  I ordered a Friends of Carl sourdough starter  and followed these instructions  beginning last night.Italicized text  below is so you can the instructions I followed.The bold text is what I actually did and observed.    Get a small container. Begin with one tablespoon of lukewarm water, stir in 1/2 teaspoon of your starter and let stand for a few minutes to soften the start granules. Then mix in one tablespoon of flour.
