awesome - my starter is weak.  Can you please shed some light on what you used and how you got it started?  If I were to mimic the formula?

For the Rye starter on the left, I refresh with 50% Rye/50% Wheat flower. The one on the right is 50% Whole Wheat/50% wheat flower. Both are @100% hydration.

I store them in the refrigerator until a couple of days prior to using them and refresh every 24 hours. After use I feed them and return to the refrigerator after a few hours.

There are many, many different ways to create and maintain starters.

Here is a very good way to get a starter going:

I just saw this for the first time. Very cool. I am going to explore the other link you provided on starting starters.

Nice video. Do you use wholemeal in the starter for pizza doughs? When I make bread, I always use organic flour, and the wholemeal flour is great for starters. I've just refreshed my starter to use it for pizza and wonder if I should just use the same starter with organic flour, or make a different one for pizzas. I aim to use 1-5% starter in the dough.

Here's a couple of timelapses from when I first made my starter. The recipe I found used flour and water by volume, not weight, so I had some struggles with it being way too high in hydration. After some feedback from TheFreshLoaf, I went down to 100% hydration and it starter behaving as normal.

200% hydration on the left, 120% hydration on the right.

The starter on the right really goes!

I use a 100% hydration starter, fed with 50% whole wheat (85% extraction) and 50% bread flour. I have not made much pizza with starter so I can't help there.

Hans,

When you use your starter, is there still a gluten network (like if you scooped it, youíd be getting clumps of dough) or does the gluten fully dissolve, and you can almost pour it out like a true liquid (butit still floats)

Iím wondering because Iíve seen a lot of people using the latter, but mine is very much the former. My starter peaks but thereís still a gluten network, such that it canít be poured.

Lou, mine do have a network, especially the rye starter. I think the longer it goes the more it loses the network.
