Yesterday I started again with the seed culture, mixing together rye flour and water. As of late last night there was no indication that there was going to be a repeat of the last time, but when I woke up this morning it had risen by about 150 percent.
So today what I’m going to do is combine the day 2 & 3 instructions, because this is where I think it all went wrong two weeks ago. Once I mix in more flour and water, I’ll let it rise by 100 percent or so, then I’ll follow the day 3 instructions by removing half and mixing it with bread flour and water. Hopefully this works.
