It all started out by watching hours and hours of Youtube videos on "How to make a sourdough starter". I was going to do this, although this takes time and patience which I do not have. I want instant gratification and I was determined to make a sourdough starter. I got my container (I used a Chinese soup container), flour and purified water. I was told in every video to use "purified" water just because there are too many chemicals and other stuff that could ruin my starter. I started out with equal parts flour and water (1/2 cup of each). Then put the lid on, not tight and left the starter to do its magic. I was also told that I needed to "feed" it every 4 hours. Ok, no problem! I opened the container and added some more flour (oh by the way I used white bread flour) and water, covered it and left it alone again. Well, by this time I was ready for bed so I fed it one more time and left the container on the counter. In the meantime I did see some bubbles so I was really happy that my "starter" was starting. I went to bed.
