Changing the ratio when feeding my starter
Hi! I currently have a starter that I've been feeding for about 14 days (this is as far as I've ever gotten). The recipe that I followed is 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white all purpose flour. Feedings call for 2 oz starter, 2.5 oz flour and 2 oz water every 24 hrs. It's fairly active but not anywhere near ready to use. When its time to feed I noticed that the top of the starter seems a little dry/crusty and slightly dark. I feel like it's too dry. I store it in glass pyrex loosely covered with plastic wrap. I tried increasing the water (tiny bit, like 1/8 oz) and that seems to be helping, but I don't want to kill it. So my question is can I switch feedings to 1:1 ratio (equal amounts of starter, water and fresh flour)? Any advise would be appreciated.
