Hello! This is an excercise in attuning to the helpful 2nd dimension!

You should receive an email each day for a week to follow along this simple process. Things you need to get started: 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup water, glass jar or bowl and something to stir your flour and water together in the jar/bowl. We go day by day adding flour and water as it starts to making bubbles. In about 7 days we will make English muffins. See day 6 for what you will need then - Happy Sourdoughing
Note: remember - this is how to START a culture -not the way that you will maintain it . You are making a concentrated starter from scratch - later you can keep it in the fridge and maintain it without doubling - this is how to feed it to concentrate it to an active starter. Starting and maintaining is different. If you feel you are making too much - then only double to amount that you want - for example - you could - only use 1 cup of your daily batch ( and throw the rest away). That way you are only using 1 cup of flour each day. It is the concentration of bacteria/yeast we are looking for- not the quantity of sourdough starter itself.
