The best time to use the starter

Hi there,


 


I've been baking sourdough breads for a year and maintain a very good starter which doubls itself within 12-15 hours.


I am trying to understand when it's the best time to use a starter.


Is it just after it doubles itself? Is it after the peek when it starts to fall? Does it matter?


Thank you,


 


David
