I've only ever used white flour and water, nothing else. I mix mine with equal weights of both to get a 100% hydration starter. Nothing else is at all necessary.


I've never used anything other than good old bread flour or all-purpose flour. I've had a lot of success with Peter Reinhart's system of doubling the weight of your starter with equal parts flour and water. In other words, if your starter weighs 4 ounces, feed your starter with 2 ounces flour and 2 ounces water. Hope this helps!
