Sourdough Starter Baby

I’m only on my third feeding of my little sourdough baby and it’s already showing a lot of activity. It’s quite fascinating to see it swell up like a billowy, sour-smelling lump of melted marshmallow, and then deflate when it gets hungry. I made a second jar, this time using whole wheat flour, just to see if there’s any difference between that and bread flour. It’s like keeping a baby Grimer in a jar, so fascinating. I’m taking my time strengthening the starter, which some people say could take anywhere between 1 week to 1 month. For now, I’m just enjoying the process and looking at photos of other people’s sourdough bread as inspiration.
