My 1st Starter?
I try my 1st sourdough starter based on Sam Fromartz recipe but it seems that I may have done something wrong.
For day 1 I mixed 100 g water, 50 g rye flour, and 50 g white flour and let it stand for 24 hrs.
For day 2 and every 8 hrs, I discard all but 75 g of the culture and feed this with 75 g water, 25 g rye flour, and 50 g white flour.
For day 3 & 4 and every 8 hours, I mixed 75 g culture / 75 g water / 75 g flour
Now on my 5 day, I noticed that the culture is very warm and bubbly, smells ok. But never rises.
Is it supposed to rise? Perhaps I should wait until the 6th or 7th day?
