Starter strength - surprising discovery

February 7, 2013 - 10:15am -- JOHN01473

i was planning a bake earlier this week and i thought i would build the starter first.

i took some starter @60% hydration from my fridge.

this had not been fed for a few weeks, the i remembered what the person who gave the recipe said about the starter needing to be strong.

i fed the starter at 9PM and set it aside to ferment over night.

in the morning at 6AM i checked it and was not happy with what i saw.
