I started my current starter, Eleanor, in January. She has always been fed on a1:2:2 ratio for maintenance. My flour mixture is 60% AP, 30% whole wheat, and 10% rye. She lives in the kitchen, and the temperature in there is always between 68-72. Currently it's about 76 in there.
She will always double, but the issue is that it takes 5-8 hours to do so. I have never been able to get her to triple. I have tried spiking occasional feedings with some extra rye, but it hasn't seemed to make any difference.
I have had relative success making bread with her, but again, it takes forever for the dough to rise enough to bake.
Should I be concerned? Do something different in feeding her? Do I just accept that this is her personality and just love her the way she is?
Thank you for any insights and advice!
