whole wheat starter question
I recently converted part of my white flour starter to whole wheat, and it seemed to be doing just fine. I'm trying to increase it to make JMonkey's whole wheat bread, which requires a lot of starter. I had 200 g. of starter, so I fed it 200 g. of water and 400 g of wheat flour hoping to double the bulk. It made a nice firm dough ball, so I figured the proportions were right. After 12 hours it isn't doing much of anything at all. My questions are: 1) do I add a bit more water to see if that perks it up? 2) will it take longer for the starter to increase in bulk because I fed it so much and I just need to learn patience? 3) did I try to increase it too much and hurt it?
Just when I think I have things figured out.......... :-(
