Feed: 1c Organic Unbromated Flour + 1c Water + Hooch from Jar A
Smell: Smells like hooch & raw flour
Look: Looks like runny dough
Started up Jars D & E today, but found that I didn’t have enough in it to make a loaf and feed it, so I grabbed a bit out of Jar A as well as all of its hooch.
With it, I split the starter between 2 jars (D and E) and another loaf of brea.
This time around, I’ve changed the recipe to include 1 teaspoon of baking powder, about 1/8 cup of hooch from Jar A, 1c of starter from Jar D (a spillover from Jar C), and replaced 1c of water with whole milk.
I heard from the latest Master Chef (season 5, episode 4) that milk has enzymes that can kill yeast unless you scald it first. So I did that (and then cooled it) before adding it into the dough destined for this week’s loaf.
I’ll report back on how that works out.
