So, overnight your wee yeasty baby has hopefully been growing and multiplying and beginning to ferment. Have a close look this morning at your starter and see if there is any sign of bubbles. If not, give it a stir and pop it back into it's warm hide-away for a bit longer. If it is - great! Now we begin to feed...
For the next few days we are going to be adding flour and water and discarding a bit of the starter until we are happy with the final product and ready to make our first loaf of bread.
Today you need to:
- whisk in 100 grams more of flour and enough water to keep the consistency the same as yesterday
- cover again with gladwrap and put it back to bed
- check again in about six hours and give it another stir, then leave it be until tomorrow morning
