Starter - feed

Hello again!

My starters are just great! Ok, but there's a little problem.... I feed 'em twice daily... and there's a lot of waste .. .A LOT! ) aprox. 600 grams of flour, just for my feedings). If I switch the feeding routine on 24h, will I lose quality?

Thanks! (again, as always, excuse my English)

If you have a lot of waste, then you are keeping your starter too large.  Reduce the size and increase it only before a bake.  Drop the starter amounts down to 20g or 50g and then feed.
