When a recipe calls for a 50-50 starter is that by volume or weight?
thanks from Iowa
In baker's percent, flour is always 100%. So...not clear what 50 -50 is meant to be. I'd assume it means, in baker's percent terms 100% flour and 100% water - or, equal weights of both. I doubt the formula is meant to be one of volumes.
or weight? If the recipe calls for cups, chances are good the starter is a liquid one. Weights -- then weight.
