Final Starter Feeding Before Baking

January 9, 2013 - 9:52am -- paralegal2001


I'm feeding my 100% hydration starter with a 1:4:4 ratio.  However, I'm not sure how much to feed to arrive at the amount needed for the dough.  I need 10 oz. for my recipe, so thought that for doubling I should feed 5 oz. of starter.  I ended up with WAY TOO MUCH starter for my baking project.  Any thoughts?  This site has been very helpful-thanks to everyone!
