Sour Dough Starter Days 3,4,5,6

You can catch up by visiting

Sour Dough Starter Day 1

Sour Dough Starter Day 2

Today when you look at your starter you will likely see some small bubbles. Don't fret if you don't, but give the starter a stir and see if some bubbles are not present.

For the next 4 days we are going to simply feed the starter, only we need to feed it regular flour and twice a day!

Days 3,4,5,6

Discard half of the starter.
Add :
1/2 C warm water
1 C all-purpose flour or bread flour.
Mix well and place in warm spot for 8 hours.
Repeat in 8 hours.

 At this point you are feeding the starter twice a day. Now if you forget a feeding, do not worry much. just pick back up and feed it.

By day 7 you should start noticing a sour smell, if you haven't already. I will be back with instructions at that time because we will need to increase amount of starter and transfer it to a larger container. I will use a plastic ice cream bucket.

Congratulations!!!! You will be baking bread next week!
