I agree, yet I've seen levain that use salt as a control... That also said, I used old pizza dough that I fed in proportion to the Giorilli method...and though bulk refreshment took about 12-16 hours...it was quite convenient and with a somewhat different less acid flavor of some levains... it was sweet and more rich in taste to say yeasted breads.. Cheers Tia!
