Characteristics

Technically, it wants to be fed more than once a day. By the time I refresh the starter, it will be way past its peak. My starter is very active.

I keep my starter at 75F-80F or 25C-26C. I refresh my starter roughly every 24 hours. Because I don't have time to refresh it often, I usually discard (or use) all but a teaspoon. Another way is to empty the starter from your vessel and just use the residual starter that's left. While I begin my starter at 150% hydration, all refreshments are only at 100%, and I only use water.

Working method

1
Hydration 150% to start, then 100% to maintain. I use a 50/50 mix of pineapple juice and Filtered water. I use a 50/50 mix of Dark Rye or Pumpernickel Flour and Whole Wheat Flour. I typically use Bob's Red Mill or King Arthur Flour.
