Can this starter be save?
I have been following Peter Reinhart's starter recipe and today was day 6. My starter had doubled + in size and I proceeded to the last step prior to mother starter. I am looking at it and it seems too firm to possibly rise anymore. It's the consistency of a kneaded bread dough. Should I add more hydration or should I just cover and hope for the best ? It was quite vigorous prior to this addition. (Obviously this is my first attempt) :)
