fermentation after 24 hr, discard and begin again. If fermentation
has begun, stir well; cover tightly with plastic wrap and return to
warm, draft-free place. Let stand until foamy, 2-3 days. When starter
has become foamy, stir well; pour into 1-qt crock or glass jar with
tighlty fitting cover. Store in frig. Starter is ready to use when a
clear liquid has risen to top. Stir before using. Use 1 c starter in
recipe; reserve remaining starter. Add 3/4 c milk and 3/4 c flour to
reserved starter. Store covered at room temp until bubbles appear,
about 12 hrs, refrigerate. Use starter regularly, every week to 10
days. If the volume of the breads you bake begins to decrease,
dissolve 1 t yeast in 1/4 c warm water. Stir in 1/2 c milk, 3/4 c
flour and the remaining starter. *DO NOT USE SELF RISING FLOUR* NOTE:
Start bread at night to bake in the morning – or vice versa. Before
adding the milk and flour to remaining starter, bake your bread and
judge the volume
