Sourdough Starter and Hooch

dish | Jun 6, 2012 08:27 PM

I just started a Sour Dough sponged today from a dried Italian strain (Castoldi). It is producing a tremendous amount of hooch quickly like every 2-3 hours. Does that mean it's starving? Should I feed it if it has an inch or two of hooch? Should I put in a less warm area - It's in my microwave probably around 80 degrees.
