Hello everyone. I am relatively new to bread and starters--I just completed my first mini-baguettes the other day and they turned out to be fairly scrumptious. After pouring through the forums, I have found one question that I found pertinent to my current situation. I am currently nurturing a starter that is now just over 1 week old. I am feeding it about a 1:1:1 ration (really need to get a scale-i.e. find money for one) twice daily with Gold Medal UAP. It is currently doubling in volume at about 6 hours. is this about what I should be expecting? Is the protein content in this flour too low for the starter/should I try making it with bread flour? Eventually I'd like to get some Bob's Red Mill or KA, but I think I need to prove to my wife that I am serious about this before buying "special" flours. Thank you all for your help. I am excited to continue to delve into the wonders of freshly baked bread.
