SourdoLady Help Please

Hello there, first I must say, your post have been a great deal of help to me regarding starters. 

Now my question, I began a starter on Saturday using KA Whole Wheat and OJ

Days 1 thru 3 went great had bubbles and rise on day 3, went flat just like you said it would.

Day 4 (today), I mixed, and removed 1/4 cup of starter and placed in container.

I then placed in 1/2 cup flour, and 1/2 cup distilled water.  I was a little upset when I went back to your post and realized I was only suppose to use 1/4 cups instead of 1/2's

Here is what it looks like about 10hours after.  Is this o.k., or is it ruined and I should start over again from the beginnning.  I dont mind starting over if this one is shot.

Thanks again,

It will be just fine. The main reason for using only 1/4 cup is so that you don't have so much waste when you have to discard. Your starter isn't going to care at all! It is looking good, by the way.
