Wild Yeast / Levain / Sourdough starter flowchart
I made a flowchart describing the process of culturing wild yeasts. What do you think?

I deliberately left it a little vague because I found many conflicting points of view and too many details make a relatively simple process rather confusing. I wanted to describe a process that should succeed every time, although there may be a lot of things that can be done to speed up the process.
Edit: I revised it to add a few corrections.
