RYE starter help needed
Hi dear people, I am Anna, new here and seeking help with my sourdough starter ;O)
I am confused, hopefully you can give me some tips. I am following this routine:
day 1: 50g water&50gflower (water is clean flour organic)
day 2: slight bubbles no rise - added 50gwater&50g flour
day 3: dough doubled - discarded all but 50g, added 50gwater&50g flour
day 4 ( THIS is the PROBLEM DAY!): I do not know what to do. I am attaching a picture. The dough did not do anything from the last feeding(23hrs ago). What to do? discard all but 50g again and feed, or wait or just add 1:1:1 again? It smells sour but not bad. As for the instructions, it tells me that on this day the starter should have doubled...
My kitchen is not the hottest (23C°approx.) But what I do not understand is that it did rise so nicely on day 3 it reached the "weck" writing and is flat now... or is this normal?
