what's a starter supposed to look like?
OK. Please excuse another newbie sourdough question.
I'm following Hamelman's recipe for the Liquid Levain Culture.
I started it on Sunday and it puffed up like crazy after the first feed. It hasn't really done that since then; it just has a bunch of small bubbles on the surface. But it hasn't really risen.
It smells quite good, like sourdough.
Am I doing OK? Should I just keep with the twice-daily feedings for next several days?
Sorry for the newbie questions, but thanks for any help.
