I was reluctant to make bread from scratch, but now I'm hooked! Thank you so much for this recipe. In order to keep the starter in perpetual motion, it's important to replace the starter quantity used that day with a fresh batch of flour and water (equal amounts, for example 1 cup water and 1 cup flour) with 2 pinches of sugar mixed in. My "baby" likes to nap in the oven with the oven light on time to time. Get a feel for your kitchen. I actually glance at my thermometer and barometer for a quick reading. Experiment, record and see what works best for you. Every kitchen is different; and your kitchen's atmosphere is different everyday. ;) Remember: the more time your starter has to sit, the more characteristic the flavor. Lastly, don't be afraid of that wonderful, powerful odor and layer of brown liquid. This will give you that coveted sourdough taste! Yummy! I've been keeping this original going for almost 6 weeks now!
