OK, I received my packet today from sourdo.com. They sent a 4 page instruction how to use it and I was confused before but now I'm really confused. I get how to activate... no problem. My question is, once it's activated, then I stick it back in the fridge, what then? I emailed the the company and he $uggested I buy their book and "shelve the pizza forum".
So I take it out of the fridge, let's say it's within 2 weeks of it being activated. What then? Do I let it sit until it bubbles then use it? or do I have to let it sit, then discard half and add more flour and water, wait until it bubbles then use it? The instructions said something about after I take what I want, then add more flour and water then back in the fridge.... What?
Also, was wondering, say a recipe calls for 3% yeast, do I just weigh the "pancake batter" straight out of the jar? Should I mix it up real good before I scoop some out and if I mix, should I do it right when I take it out of the fridge or after it activates?
If I use mostly AP flour for the SD recipies, is that what I should use in the starter? I'm going to make some pies on a friend's BS and will purchase some 00, will it be OK if the starter is a different type of flour than the dough?
I'm sure I'll have more questions but that should be enough for now.
