"Found this on Breadtopia - but the creator of the technique is Debra Wink. The ingredient measurements are rounded up - just follow the exact measurements given in the directions. So long as you have the amounts listed in the ingredients, you will have MORE than enough to finish the "recipe". NOTE: THIS IS A FIVE DAY PROCESS!!!"
