Natural Leaven: Day Three
As I was coming home last night (it was past midnight) I kept thinking about my concoction in the cupboard and that I had to feed it once I got in. So even though it was late, a school night and I had drunk a few glasses of wine the first thing I did when I got in was check out the leaven.
It didn't look much different from day two, shiny on top with maybe a few bubbles but it definitely smelt different. A definite souring from yesterday.
Yesterday's feed was 100g of water at 20C and 4 tsp each of rye and strong white flour. Water in first again then the flours. Back into it's cupboard ready for feeding later this evening.
