It's time to take stock. I now think that my starter is not as active as it should be and I'm experimenting with 3 different ways of reviving it. No, reviving is not the right word. The starter needs to be strengthened. It just doesn't perform as it should. The initial rise is very slow and not at all vigorous. The dough becomes very liquid and virtually impossible to shape and retain any form.
- Starter version 2.1 is enjoying a feeding of a little rye flour.
- Starter version 2.2 will be fed some pineapple juice.
- Starter version 2.3 has consumed some grapes.
