Oh – this is such a great question. Jodie, you can still do a same day levain. Triple or quadruple the amount of starter in the morning and your levain will be ready in 4-6 hours. You can use all the levain in the formula, you don’t have to weigh out slightly less to account for the extra starter, does that make sense?
In the last version of the classic, there was an option to make the levain in the morning for baking later that same day. In glancing through the new classic formula, I did not see that option. Do you now recommend only using the overnight levain? Thanks!
