Best stage to use the starter
My new starter of 15 days seems to be ready. To check, I wish to bake the first loaf. I am looking around for an easy beginners loaf to start with. Meanwhile can anyone please tell me how/when should i use the starter ?
Should I use the starter just after feeding it ? or when it has peaked and ripe after a feed ? or just before when it requires a feed ?
(I am feeding it once a day in the evening around 8:00 pm - 0.5 oz starter + 2 0z water + 2 0z flour - it doubles in about less than 8 hours).
Quite anxious and want things to work. First loaf - want it to be good :-) atleast edible.
