Starter miracle


Hello, Brian here from the current epicenter, Brooklyn NY.

I followed the instructions on King Arthur's website about making a sourdough starter from scratch, which is a week or so process.  But 24 hours into it the thing was bubbling.  I took some off so I could feed it, and threw it on a hot pan with oil.  What I got can only be described as an English Muffin.  It was a starter miracle!  At least it seemed to me.  

I was gonna go by the book, but now I realize we don't make the timeline, the starter makes the timeline.  I need to listen to the starter, so that's why I'm here.
