Starting my Tartine starter
I bought the Tartine book and am obsessed with getting going on it, I have a small amount of bread experience but have never made a starter. I followed the instructions by filling a container 1/2 with water and a handful of APF I ended up adding a few more handfuls because it said the consistency should be liek a thick batter, once I achieved the correct consistency I covered the container and placed in the microwave just to keep the temp consistant. Its been 4 days and no bubbles but it seems the water and the flour have seperated? So strange, what did I do wrong and should I just start over? Any advice and ideas are greatly appreciated.
