Sourdough – Day 5 – The Splitting

photo 1-1

My sourdough starter has not been looking or smelling too good the past few days. I took the decision today to split it right back down, throw most of it away and feed it to see where that gets me. Apparently the yellowy liquid appearing on the top means that it’s being starved.

I also split some more off and I’m feeding it a higher ratio of flour to water and splitting it more aggressively. FOR SCIENCE!

We’ll see what it looks like tomorrow. Both Spawn and MiniSpawn.
