When to feed my starter...
It's been 48 hrs since I began my sourdough starter. At his point lots of bubbles and it has doubled in size, it looks great. My questions:
1. Should feed now or wait until it falls or does it really matter?
2. Should each successive feeding follow the same routine?
In the best case you feed it just after it has been started collapsing with the same ratio as always.
But that is often not the case since we have other stuff to do than watching our starter all day. I have fed my starter at peak maturity or many hours after, still fine. Used different ratios, still fine.
For now I would recommend feeding it about every 24 hours the same ratio (or what ever your recipe recommends) for another week . That is to give it some rhythm and strength.
Stir it well, use organic flour and fingers crossed :)
