    Measure out 1 cup of mixture to start sourdough bread. Takes longer for rising, but taste is phenomenal.

    Once a week after drawing off 1 cup of mixture for bread, stir in the weekly add-in amounts of flour, water and sugar. Stir to incorporate the fresh ingredients and let stand at room temperature for 1 day, stirring 2-3 times during the day.
