Okay to Transfer Starter

January 28, 2011 - 9:17am -- rlmoon

After a couple false starts on my first attempt at a sourdough starter, I have me first starter and it's ALIVE!! Maybe too much  :-O

On day 6 (today), I was coming downstairs and could smell that nice yeasty smell and to my surprise when I walked into the kitchen I found that the starter had come ALIVE and was spilling out of the top of the jar (when it has always been about 1/4 to 1/3 of the jar). It's growing like crazy now and I just had to stir it down again.
