Happy Peter Sourdough recipe

Happy Peter sourdough recipe 

As mentioned in previous post, I have changed some of the instruction which I found online to suit those who wish to start your own sourdough starter and yet live in one of the tropical countries which we have summer season the whole year round.

Here it is:

1st day:

1 Tbsp of water
1 Tbsp of bread flour
mix well, and keep in a warm place, what I did is, I turn on a small light in my kitchen to keep the place warmer.

2nd day:

1 Tbsp of water
1 Tbsp of bread flour 
Mix well and keep. Smell not quite pleasant.

3rd day:

1 Tbsp of water
1 Tbsp of bread flour
Mix well and keep. Normal fermenting smell.

4th day:

Ok, here is the key day, I didn't keep it in liquid form anymore, I add in more bread flour to make them paste form or till it is in dough form, up to you, just don't keep it in liquid form any more.
1 Tbsp water
Sufficient of bread flour

5th day:

1 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp of bread flour
(mix well lah)

6th day:

1 Tbsp of water
2 Tbsp of bread flour

7th day:

1 Tbsp of water
1 Tbsp of bread flour

This is Happy Peter Sourdough Starter as
today's date 7th April,
I have start feeding it with rye flour and
wholemeal flour a month ago,
you may do some variation to it,
no harm brings. 
By then sourdough gas beginning more stable, and it won't turn bad easily.
(whispering) I don't actually follow the ratio, as long as I mix them and till I get the same consistency (same paste / dough form).
Remember to keep it in fridge if you are not baking, make sure you feed it once a week, if you would like to feed it every day, feed bit by bit, this will prevent sourdough turns very sour, unless you like the sourness.

I have read some questions that posted online, some like the sourdough to be very sour, this is easy, if you keep the sourdough starter longer period in fridge the sour-est it could be.

If you do not like the bread tasted very sour, try to feed sourdough starter everyday no matter if you are baking or not.

Good planning helps to keep everything in control. Feed it in small amount. Or..... giveaway to friends.
