    Once you have made the starter, how often do you feed it? For example, I make the starter, make bread, feed the starter and then what? Do I keep the remaining starter in the fridge and just feed it when I use it or do I need to feed it every couple of days like watering a plant?

    I made my starter last night, set out all night. Can I take a cup off this morning and make bread or do I have to feed it again and put in refrigerator then feed it again?

    Do you add flour when you feed the starter? I had a starter for years but let it die. I fed it every 3 to 5 days with 3/4 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 cup water and 3 tablespoons instant potatoes. I am looking for the starter recipe.
