Tartine Starter Day 3
As my Tartine Bread obsession continues, I've been diligently feeding my starter. Day 3 brought the stinky smell that Chad Roberts describes in his book. Somehow though, that stinky smell did not keep the kitten away as I attempted to photograph the starter.
I removed 80% of the starter and added equal amounts of the flour mixture and lukewarm water. I gently mixed them all together by hand until the lumps were gone.
The starter is back resting, growing and forming. At this point, you start feeding the starter everyday around the same time. I've been feeding my starter in the morning.
