Looking for a simple starter
Thanks for all the inspiring pictures and posts of all the bread you have made. I have been lurking and baking behind the scenes and I really want to try making a starter. There are a few things holding me back though and I was hoping for some advice/help.
I am not a big fan of sour dough breads but I do want to try making a starter, as a learning experience. I am also not a huge fan of waste and from what I have been reading, much of the start up requires throwing away quite a bit of dough. (Flour is expensive!) What I am looking for is advice on a starter that is very small (I am only baking for two people), with minimal waste, good flavor without too strong a sour dough taste. Right now, I have available to me All Purpose Flour (unbleached), Bread Flour and Whole Wheat Flour. Still learning how to read/understand % calculations..so please go easy on me.
Thank you ahead of time!
