Starter sinks in water
Hi Everyone, Im new into baking and I've tried a few versions of a simple sourdough bread. It did not rise as much as I expected it to be. After reading a few blogs, I was told to test my starter by throwing a spoon fool in a bowl of water and if it floats is good.
However, I did that and realised my started actually sank rite down, thou I had been feeding it regularly and it is as bubbly.
Cud someone pls help me out here. I am almost the verge of giving up here.
Thank you to you Awesome bakers out there .
