New starter.... Next step??
Well the starter is 2 weeks old now and looks pretty stable. I was concerned at one point and was feeding 1:3:3 twice a day for about 3 days and just this morning cut it back to 1:2:2. Don't ask why as I really don't have a clue!! What I would like to ask for at this point is a recipe for a simple SD sandwich dough that I can make in a regular loaf pan. I'll also need the steps to "prep" the starter or the explanation of "hydration" to get the things going as well as possible. I guess what I'm asking for is to have someone hold my hand and walk me though the next few steps with baby steps so that it will sink into this thick scull of mine! I've been teaching myself to bake bread by going to one of the online recipe sites and reading the recipe, reading ALL the reviews that are posted, and then making the bread incorporating the modifications that other suggested. It has worked out well for about 24 assorted loaves of bread... so far! I've read a lot on this site (and others) and watched a lot of video and sometimes I just get a bit overwhelmed and confused. I'm using scales and would like to stay with recipes that are by weight so that I might get a little bit better consistency. There is still so much to learn but I do want to understand what I'm doing a little better.
Hope I'm not asking too much here!
