feeding ratios
« on: November 06, 2013, 02:27:28 PM »
I was asked what my feeding schedule looked like in a PM which got me researching feeding ratios. Apparently I don't play by the rules - my last feeding was about 1:0.3:0.3 (i know, pretty low).

What is the usual recommended ratio? I've seen a wide range from 1:1:1 up to 1:8:8 depending on activity. I do keep mine in the fridge most of the time and only feed it once a week so I'm not sure if that's how I've been able to get by on such a low ratio. Should I bump it up?

Attached is a shot of a 12hr dough made using starter fed with the ratio mentioned above.
If Tetris has taught me anything, itís that errors pile up and accomplishments disappear.

I don't think it matters a whole lot so long as you do the same thing every time.
