Diary of a sourdough starter: day 4

Day 4, fed the starter 1/3 (80 mL) cup water and 1/3 cup (40 g) flour in the AM and the PM.

Kept it covered with a tea towel.  It's very gloppy and stringy.  But this is desirable, what a good starter should look like.  It smells faintly fermented, also a good thing.

Tomorrow I'll be able to use 2 cups (475 mL) of the starter in a batch of sourdough pancakes.  Yum!  Will update you on pancake-making tomorrow.
