    Day 4: To see if your sourdough starter is ready for baking, do the float test. Add a small amount of starter to a glass of water. If it sinks, keep feeding it with flour and water for one more day. If it floats, the sourdough starter is ready to be used for baking. Measure out the starter according to your recipe and transfer the remaining starter to a jar. Seal the jar and place in the fridge. For your next baking project, start feeding your starter again at “Day 2.”
