Sourdough Starter Question
I made my first ever sourdough starter 2 days ago. I did one cup of flour and one cup of water. In less than 24 hours it was already bubbling. Last night, i dumped out half and fed it with half a cup of flour and half a cup of water. It's stored in a plastic container with a lid. The starter is very bubbly, and is starting to explode out of the container. It is also separating. There are patches of water in it, even after I mix it. I have a few questions.
1.) Howmany feedings do I need to do before I can use it?
2.) What should I do about the fact that it is already starting to overflow my container?
3) Is the separation something that I should be concerned about?
