Starter Terminology

June 30, 2009 - 6:49pm -- Mini Oven

I know this seems a little late but I think we could all benefit if we define these terms in order to remove any confusion surrounding them.

What is a:

  • new starter
  • young starter
  • active starter
  • fresh starter
  • old starter
  • mature starter
  • ripe starter


Thanks for participating.
