Tonight I have mixed 2 1/4 cups of flour with 2 cups of very warm water until smooth.
I put it in a bowl that I warmed under hot water and set it on a crock pot half full of warm water and set on low.
I covered it to keep in the warmth because my windows are going to stay open tonight and it will get to 45 degrees outside.
This must ferment for 10-14 hours. I will know it is ready because it will smell like stinky cheese and will be bubbly and foamy.
Tomorrow I will post the next steps.
