Question: Building my SFO Sourdough Starter

I'm busy activating my SFO sourdough starter.  I'm at the point where I am feeding two jars and the directions say to throw away all but 1 cup of the mixture every 12 hours.  Can I use the throw away parts to make a loaf?

Use it along with yeast as a flavor component (pre-ferment). Add a little flour, if needed, to adjust it to the consistency of your final dough.

Thanks!  Now maybe the wait for the real starter to get going will not seem so bad.  Yum!
