SourdoLady, I've just fed for Day 3 of my orange juice whole wheat flour starter; when I repeat Day 4 after tomorrow, do I have to keep discarding all but 1/4 of a cup?  It's got all little bubbles right now over the surface and smells very nice; it's now living on top of the fridge in the kitchen.

Yes, always discard all but the 1/4 cup before feeding it. It sounds like it is off to a good start!

I'd done the Day 4 refreshment with the spring water and unbleached white flour, transferred it to a Ziploc container and put it on top of the fridge.  I heard a pop from the kitchen, went in, and sure enough, the top had popped up!  It seems very active and bubbly now.
