Hi All, I just wanted to check in with some of the more experienced bakers as I am still fairly new. I am following the basic sourdough recipe in the BB and using a starter that I nurtured according to the instructions in TBB. I have made this recipe once before and it worked exactly according to the directions.
I am now making this recipe for the second time (it’s one week later), and am making a double recipe. I started expanding the starter this morning. The recipe says that the first expansion should go until doubled, about 6-8 hrs. Mine is already more than doubled and it has only been just over 2 hours.
Which is the more important, time or volume? Should I move on to the second expansion? Or wait a little longer?
