Unknown material in my sourdough
I've been baking bread for a little while now but only recently got into sourdough. Been tending to my starter for 2 weeks now and felt it was ready to finally make a loaf or 2.
I made my starter mix as well as autolyse and everything was fine up until my first shaping when I found strands of a whitish clear substance with the texture of raw chicken almost. but it looked like some sort of worm.
I combed through the starter to make sure there wasn't some contamination and didn't see any of it there.
Anyone have an idea of what this is? Sorry if this is a dumb question, It just freaked me out.
I've cleaned it up and watched but there is no movement which has me thinking it might be some type of membrane or something.
