Hi, I'm Mary and I live in Irwin, Idaho. My first bake day did not go great as my batter did not rise. I live in a very cold area and I also live at 5500 feet above sea level. I do have the proofer which I store my mother in to keep it at 73 degrees. I'm wondering if altitude and cold weather can play a part in the activity of the mother. Week two is already proving to be better, with much more activity in the mother and a much thicker, airy consistency. I also wanted to let others know that you are not alone if your first bake day didn't go great! Any advice would be appreciated. I am using Kamut organic flour and distilled water as recommended in the book.

Hi Mary and welcome! I answered a question very similar to yours earlier this week. You can find it here: http://wildbread.net/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=255 I responded to your email too.

I included a picture of my 2nd week mother. I am hoping this consistency is more correct? Week 1 mother was more liquid and not near as many bubbles.

That looks wonderfully bubbly and active! Considering this is just week 2, I think you're off to a great start!
