Sour Dough Starter

Adapted from

2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon honey
1 package active dry yeast
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour

Measure the water in a 8 cup liquid measure. Stir in honey. Add in yeast. Stir to dissolve. Slowly add in flour.

Cover with cheesecloth and place in a warm area.

Stir once daily for five days. After the fifth day refrigerate until ready to use.

Don't use a smaller measuring cup. I put it in a 4 cup measuring cup at first. It bubbled up into the cheesecloth in about 15 minutes.
