Diagnose my starter?
Pictures will be better than words, I think.
" Growth Mark "
All those bubbles make me think it's alive and well on its way, but I can't shake the fear that it will never rise! As you can see, it rose about a millimeter. It is a 100% hydration starter, fed about 12 hours ago. I don't know if i should feed it again or not.
I started it with AP flour and bottled water at 100% hydration. Day 1 had bacteria bubbles. Day 3-6 it looked dead, and I fed it with rye flour on day 6 and day 7.
Today is day 8. I'm aware that it was off to a VERY slow start because of the AP flour and water ( rather than rye and pineapple juice ).
Any thoughts? Is Yost my Yeast on its way?
