Sourdough refreshment error!!!
Need some help working out how to get my starter back on track.
I'm following the Richard Bertinet sourdough starter method from his book "Crust".
Got a great starter and made two sourdough loaves with 400g of the starter leaving me with about 350g left to refresh.
Unfortunately, as it was about 7 am and due to lack of sleep from a crying baby, I switched the flour / water refreshment amounts from his schedule in error!
800g Flour to 400g water... I switched the half water to flour ratio!
I upped the addition of flour to 450g to make up to the 800g for flour (having only 350g of starter)! Then doubled the water to 900g! Should clearly have been 850g of flour and 450g of flour.
Consequently I now have a very liquid starter which I calculate out at somewhere between 50 - 75% hydration?
It seems fine in the fridge (the usual slightly dark water on the top is expected from an earlier time I was running a 50/50 water to flour starter), but I would like to get back to the correct mix or ratio as closely as possible to do his recipes, as the first attempt were really good.
What can I do to get back on track? Clearly I have to add more flour, but in what amount? (Also I don't want to be swamped in starter (yet!) as my wife will not be too happy to share kilos of starter in the fridge!
Incidentally the sourdough loaves seemed pretty good!
