Tartine starter day 3.

No I didn’t skip a day! The book says to give it 2-3 days until you see bubbles start to form around the sides. I would think that because I’m using this nice flour that there’s lots of natural yeast hiding in the grain, because after just under 2 days my starter was bubbling away like crazy! It was alive!

So I scooped out about 80% of the starter and ‘fed’ it again with the same 50/50 whole wheat/white flour mix and luke warm water. Can’t wait until the next feeding tomorrow!

Here’s a couple shots I took outside of HCMA again today after work of “The Waterfall Building”. Kinda gimicky if you ask me, but fun nonetheless.

    Did you make bread with the starter that you scooped out?

      No but that’s a great idea. I didn’t even think of that, I just assumed that it wasn’t ready but my starter seems to be pretty active. It’d be a good indicator if my flour is ok or not, this stuff is pretty coarse even with the “white”. I might cut it with 50% all-purpose white from the store to make a whiter loaf of bread.

      The best part, is I can experiment! Thanks for the comments!
