Making a Sourdough Starter From Scratch - Day 5
You may need to start stirring your hooch back into the starter 1-2 time a day now, as it can collect more frequently as the activity builds.
Today also marks a change in our feeding schedule, as now that your culture is maturing and growing it would need a lot more food (flour) to feed on to stay active.
At this stage you can start dividing your starter at each feed and in these early days we're tossing the discarded amount straight in the trash.
  • 100g (approx. ¾ cup) flour
  • 100g (100ml) spring or filtered water.
  1. Stir the hooch back into your starter 1-2 times daily.
  2. Remove ½ - ¾ of the total starter amount in your jar and discard.
  3. Add the flour and water and mix to combine. Put aside in a warm place for another 24 hours.
