Building Up Your Sourdough Starter

The only thing you need to do in preparation of this recipe is build your starter up over 500 grams. I almost always keep at least 500 grams of 100% hydration starter in my jar now for projects like these easy pancakes, Discard Crackers, Pasta, or even fast Pizza Crust! After using my starter I feed it with enough equal weight flour and water to build it up over 500 grams, let it ferment for a few hours, and then stick it in the fridge. When I pull the starter out I use some for a project that calls for discard, feed it, allow it to peak, and then use that really fresh and happy starter to make bread!
