Getting ready to make a sourdough starter but have a couple of questions. pjh recommended I start with a simple starter of water, honey, flour & yeast in a 3-4qt glass/ceramic container. First, knowing there are endless recipes out there (some simple, some more complex), is there a big difference between them in terms of the final product or are they fairly similar in character and taste?
My next question is whether it's okay to start this out in a smaller, 2qt bowl or if I would be risking an "I Love Lucy" moment as it takes over my kitchen. Anxious to get started but don't have a 3-4qt crock or jar handy.
Thanks for your advice!
