The instructions that came with the King Arthur sourdough starter that I ordered about a month ago call for adding twice as much flour as water every time you "feed" the starter (adding a cup of flour and a half-cup of water, to be exact). Is that a mistake? I was very confused but double-checked the instructions against the ones downloadable on this site with the starter. It doesn't work very well! Julie, you feed the starter with equal parts flour and water BY WEIGHT - which is 1/2 cup water (4 oz.) and 1 cup flour (4 oz.). Does that help? If not, please call our bakers' hotline, 802-649-3717 - they can help you sort this out. PJH
