Is this not quite a lot of starter? I usually only use a couple of tablespoons of starter when I'm making sourdough.

This has a huge amount of starter. This was a formula I converted from a recipe in one of my older bread books. Normally, the starter percentage is around 30% - 35% or so. I tried this recipe exactly because it used a lot of starter and I happened to have a lot of started that I wanted to use. :) Note, this is 'young starter', where I feed the starter with a small shot of mother starter to get the yeast rolling without a lot of acetic acid build up. This give you a lot of flavor with excessive 'sourdough tang'.

Oh, did I miss the sourdough lesson?

I'd love to know the recipe. Starter seems to multiply like wild rabbits in my fridge and I'd love a recipe that uses LOTS of it.
