Okay to Transfer Starter
After a couple false starts on my first attempt at a sourdough starter, I have me first starter and it's ALIVE!! Maybe too much :-O
On day 6 (today), I was coming downstairs and could smell that nice yeasty smell and to my surprise when I walked into the kitchen I found that the starter had come ALIVE and was spilling out of the top of the jar (when it has always been about 1/4 to 1/3 of the jar). It's growing like crazy now and I just had to stir it down again.
My question is .... can/should I transfer the starter to a larger jar? Is that okay to do? I do plan to take my first pull from the starter this afternoon in preperation to make my first sourdough loaf and I thought that would be a good time to transfer and refresh the starter.
... any help would GREATLY be appreciated. I don't want to loose my first starter-baby!!
