Sourdough Bread Diary Day 5
This is what the starter looked like 30 minutes before feeding time.
The temperatures dropped a bit this morning and it was down to 19C in my bedroom. It felt great human-wise, but it was a bit too cool for the yeast and they have been lazy inside their bigger and better new home.
There was a layer of hooch again this morning but no layer of froth on top and I decided to put the metal lid on top of the cloth without snapping it shut to warm-up the interiors of the glass bottle a bit. Due to this or because the day became warmer, the yeast started to dance around a bit in the afternoon and I saw some sparkly bubbles emerging from the mire.
Feed: 1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour + 1/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour + 1/2 Cup Luke Warm Water
