Use fresh, single grain gluten-free flours

By using non-chlorinated tap water at room temperature, you are giving your starter the BEST chance to grow
Don't seal the lid
You don't want to create a bomb which can be done with a sealed lid. Just gently place it on
Make sure to discard each day
Discarding each day gets rid of the sour "hooch" and keeps your starter from growing too large too fast
Keep your starter in a warm place
Keeping your starter in a warm place will help it grow and ferment faster
Be patient to let it ferment fully
Patience really is the hardest thing to have during this whole process but think slow to success...
