Sourdough 101 - Day 2

If you didn't catch Day 1 - start here!

So, overnight your wee yeasty baby has hopefully been growing and multiplying and beginning to ferment. Have a close look this morning at your starter and see if there is any sign of bubbles. If not, give it a stir and pop it back into it's warm hide-away for a bit longer. If it is - great! Now we begin to feed...

For the next few days we are going to be adding flour and water and discarding a bit of the starter until we are happy with the final product and ready to make our first loaf of bread.
Today you need to:
  • whisk in 100 grams more of flour and enough water to keep the consistency the same as yesterday
  • cover again with gladwrap and put it back to bed
  • check again in about six hours and give it another stir, then leave it be until tomorrow morning
Add flour and water to your bubbling starter
Part one here.
Part three here.
Part four here.
