Know the capacity of your container so you can weigh the Sourdough Starter without creating washing up. Our sourdough starter kilner jars hold a max volume of 500g. When building your starter it is a good idea to transfer to a bigger jar as you can expect your active starter to double in volume.
Ideally you should always retain at least a quarter of your Sourdough Starter so you don’t dilute it’s flavour or performance.
Feed your Sourdough Starter more if you wish to bake more bread or create more sourdough culture to share. This will momentarily dilute the flavour.
Sourdough culture often separates after a day or two. Just stir the grey water back in when you feed it.
