Ok, now that we have a sourdough starter ready...... (having a rough day)

Ok.  I now have a beatiful sourdough starter rearing and ready to go.


Today, I took the time and made a motherstarter that is nice and firm and has doubled in size...


But what do I do now with the motherstarter? 


How do I incorporate it into a dough recipe? 


I am pretty sure that the answers to these questions are as plain as the nose on my face, but I have had one VERY mentally tough day.


Can anyone hold my hand and tell me which direction to go?

CK, your starter is ready to bake into bread.  Here is my recipe for Five-Grain Seeded Sourdough bread.  If you want to make a basic sourdough bread, just omit the soaker.
