I recently created a starter using organic apple juice and whle wheat white flour.
The first 3 days were 2T whole wheat white and 2T apple juice, 4th day - pulled out 1/4 C discarded balance and added 1/4 C WWW and 1/4 water, will do the same on day 5 (today).
How do i maintain the starter after its been created? Do I just keep adding flour and water in equal proportions until i need to use it? Also, should I refrigerate it or not? Do I close the lid tightly or allow it to breath? I have it in a glass pyrex xontainer with a plastic top.
