first sourdough - am I missing something
Another sourdough newbie lost and confused!
I have been baking bread successfully for a good while and wanted to venture into sourdoughs.
I made my first stater 8 days ago using 1:1 MDC Tradition flour and water, and have been feeding it twice a day 1:1:1. It is chilly here but the starter is easily doubling in 4 to 5 hours.
Last night I decided to try it out for baking my first loaf: I put 100g of starter (100%) into an autolysed dough (450g flour and 320g water) to give a final hydration of 70% with 10g salt.
I mixed/folded in my usual way and left to bulk over night in the fridge. I removed it from the fridge this morning with exactly no rise at all! 8 hours on the side in the kitchen it is alive (there are bubbles visible through the glass bowl) but still no rise.
Have I done something wrong? Is the starter not yet ready?
Thanks for any input
