Sourdough Culture Activation

3/4 cup All-purpose flour
1 cup Water
Sourdough culture mix (bought online at sourdo.com)

Combine ingredients into a 1qt canning jar
Mix till it's a smooth batter

Keep it warmed to 90 degrees for 12 hours.

Use a styrofoam cooler (I found this one on the street)
Put the jar of culture under the cooler with a 25 watt light bulb. (bought a 25 watt party bulb at Meijer)

Monitor the temperature over the next 12 hours to ensure it's maintained at 90 degrees
After 12 hours check to see that the culture has risen to near the top of the jar.
Now your sourdough culture is active and ready to make some amazingly delicious doughs.
