I need some advice re my starters (4x - I know, too many). I created 2 some time ago, and because I could. I morphed some discards into a wholewheat and a rye starter. They are all 100% hydration. I realise now that I don't need all these different types, but can't bear to throw any out. I decided to reduce the amount of their feeds from 100/100g water/flour to economise. At 10.ooam I fed all four at the ratio 20/40/40 starter/water/flour and left at room temp. As at 20.30 tonight. there has been very little activity. and virtually no rise, but with some sub-surface bubbles. Would the reduced feed amount have affected their activity? The temp today was only 25C. They are normally kept in the frig.
I hope I haven't hurt their feelings.
