The process could take up to ten days, yet it’s as easy as it is. The first day, mix the flour, sugar, milk, and yeast, then put it in a place at your desired temperature till it’s bubbly. This starter may be kept in a container that has ziplocks with the instructions printed on the bag, or put it into a mixing bowl and store the bowl open to air. Be sure to avoid using metallic bowls or other tools due to the fact that the acidity of sourdough may dissolve certain types of metals. For the days between 2 and 5, you only must mash the bag lightly and allow it to rest on the counter of your kitchen. The mixture will begin to ferment, the bag is filled with air, you must let it go after a certain point, so that you do not have to get into the kitchen only to find an explosive starter.
