I am proud to say that I created my own sourdough starter, from scratch, on the first try! It is a few months old and I couldn't be more thrilled. It's active, delicious, and (well, you guys will understand) my pride and joy. That being said, I have a question about feeding it.
feeding starter ratio
I am trying to figure out the differences/benefits of these feeding ratios. I see some people just say 'double it' / 1:2:2, while others say to go with a 1:3:4. I was told to do the latter, and thats how I'm feeding my little sourdough starter right now (2 tbs starter, 1/2 cup flour, a little less than 1/2 cup water)... but I'm so curious why some recommend one over the other? What is the difference????
Thanks for any input!!
