Sourdough Starter Day 8 01

Sourdough Starter Day 8

I was very naughty on Friday. I went out after work for some dinner and drinks and though I didn’t get home late, I just couldn’t be bothered to refresh my sourdough. Oh well, it doesn’t seem to have done it too much harm, good to know it isn’t going to die on me if I forget about it for a day.

Not only did it not die but when I checked it yesterday (day 8) it was thriving! It had grown a lot, was super bubbly and smelt nice and acidic. I went through my ritual of discarding 3/4 of it and topping it up with fresh water & flour and returning it to the cupboard. I was hoping that I’d get to bake with it this weekend, but I’ve not had a chance. Next weekend I’ll have some time, so check back then to see if all the effort has been worth it!

      It’s a lot less hassle than I thought it would be, it’s just remembering to do it that’s the problem!
      I’m looking forward to finding out if it’s been worth the effort…
