Directions:
After stirring on Day 27, take out 3 cups. Give 1 cup each to two friends with feeding and baking instructions. Use 1 cup yourself in baking. The remaining starter should be fed to keep going.

Personal Notes:
Feeding schedule: Day 1: do nothing. Do not refrigerate. Keep loosely covered in glass container. Day 2 - 4: stir once daily until smooth with a wooden spoon. Day 5: blend 1 c. flour and 1 c. sugar together. Add 1 c. milk, then stir into the starter. Cover loosely. Day 6 - 9: stir once daily until smooth. Day 10: combine 1 c. each flour, sugar and milk and stir into starter until smooth. Divide into four 1-cup portions. Keep 1 and continue with feeding schedule. Give 2 portions to worthy friends, along with feeding instructions (starting with Day 1) and bread recipe. Use the remaining starter in your own baking.

Don't use metal containers or utensils - a covered crock or large glass bottle is ideal, but a plastic bag with a zipping closure will work. Be sure the container is large enough, as the starter will rise & froth when stirred. If using a large jar, leave the lid loose to allow gases to escape. If using a bag, squeeze rather than stir the starter; let air out periodically.
