When I see "four quart jar", I see a gallon jug. Maybe someone doesn't know what a four quart jar turns into.

This was before the Noon feeding today. It looks like it is getting close to doubling. The lid was bulged pretty good so that is a good sign. It is starting to smell right too.

I thought it was overly optimistic! Little did I know!

I am giving this starter a go today. It is doubling (just) in the container so I will try to make a round for dinner tomorrow. It is in a bowl and rising.

I will report back when I decide if this is actually going to work or not.

I meant to get back to this and then didn't.

The round turned out ok, though I damn near destroyed the dough getting it out of the brotform. Ugh.. stuck to it like white on rice. The flavor was good though, the bread was ugly.

Today I have some sandwich bread rising, so we will see how that goes. The starter is pretty much tripling in the bowl so it has gumption.

I have done a final storage feed and moved it to the fridge for now. If this bread does well I can start the periodic feedings and make SD when I wish.

Do you need a whip and chair when you approach the starter?
