Day 3 and still going strong  :D Love this warm weather.
Actually, it's only day two - I counted the start day.

All well and good though.  :D

Do you reckon it would make a difference if I fast forward 1 day? I want to give out the starters on Australia Day.

I would think as long as Herman is fed and kept warm in the right conditions he should be fine to bring him forward one day Michele ;)

You were better planned than you thought Michele, what a great idea to give Herman out when you have a houseful of visitors.  I hope you have enough to go around.

I've completely lost the plot. I need medicating.  :-))

I went back to CC's photorial and day 1 is the day you mix the yeast, warm water and flour. So today is day 4 and Australia Day will be day 10.  ???

No matter I will work it out get up early and bake a cake to divide up for folk that can't commit to Herman.  :D

Herman is doing so well - a very proud mama here.  :D He's been fed and as CC did I warmed his milk so as he won't catch a chill. I only put half the amount of sugar in as everyone has commented what a sweetie Herman is.

As I will be going a day over now - well that's my calculation for today anyway - hopefully the pills will kick in soon and the dementia will be kept at bay - I'm going to feed Herman again on day 7 but only half the amounts of flour and milk and a quarter of the sugar as Herman is obviously sweet enough.  :D

There will be little Hermans everywhere soon.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Here' Herman or what's left of him. Forum won't let me post a photo of the entire cake.
It's a lovely moist cake - everyone enjoyed it. It was hard to give the starter away though. Could only give one away.
So I have 2 left which I will combine into one and start again.
