    I used to make sour dough bread frequently. Ready to start again. Your article was inspiring!
    Thank loads- or is it ‘Thanks loafs’?

      It’s hard to go back to any other kind of bread once you’ve started with sourdough! Thanks “loafs” for reading, Patsy! 🙂

    I really appreciate your site, Im trying to make a sourdough starter and I have tried two other times from a recipe I found in a book and both of those times were no good the first one smelled terrible and when I tried to use it to make bread ir came out like a rock and never doubled or even grew. The next attempt the starter seemed better but the bread dough again did not grow and was extremely dry. I have made MANY regular bread loaves, and I am determined not to let this sourdough experience beat me HAHA. Any tips you have are greatly appreciated as well as a good bread recipe and when to do the stretch and fold I keep hearing so much about because that book also did not have anything to do with thought.

    Side note today is day three of trying to make your starter… after the discard and re feed it did not grow again is this normal and it should grow again after I feed today ? Also how long to you think is best to wait between feedings?

    Sorry the details on first feeding and the second day are not clear to me. Do you start discarding on the same day as the first feeding? Is the first feeding and the second day the same day?

    I accidentally misread the instructions and I discarded half of my starter before I did my first feeding. Then I added 60g of flour and water. Did I ruin the starter? It actually doubled in size in 3 hours, so it seems like it’s growing okay…
