What can I do with my new starter?

I have ordered a starter from a well known supplier of several varieties.  This one is the Austrian variety.  I am not going to be able to buy the recommended cookbook containing recipes specific for this starter.  I can't imagine why one would need to buy and read a whole book before using this starter!  I have made sourdough before using many different methods.  Some worked and some didn't. I assume that this starter will work with european rye and mixed grain recipes, which is what I intend to make with it.  Do any of you have a recipe or suggestions for using this type of starter?  It would be much appreciated!

Don't fret so much, some yeast is slower, and some faster, but you aught to be able to adjust to any recipe
