Actually everywhere I read say to add a little juice kefir and the it may not work out without it nand Idon't have any juice kefir so I just used water and flour.
1/2 c water
1/2 c flour
Mix together in jar, cover. Place in warm spot. Winter home are too cold for a new starter, so I put mine in the oven with either the light on or boil a kettle of water and place it in the oven with door shut. If usinf the kettlem, you may have to remarn the kettle throughout the day.
Remove half the mixture and add more flour and water to make it 1 cup of starter, flour andwater (so this means add a little less than 1/2 cup water and flour to your mixture.) Using a canning jar realy helps to have the measurement lines. The goal is to never feed it more than it already has when starting out. This is a young starter and yo don't want to overwhelm it yet with too much flour and water.
Repeat day 2.
You may see bubbles this day which is a good thing.
Repeat day 2 for a few more days, and then when your starter is really bubbly and rising, you may then use it for bread. I then increase my starter by not removing any more starter to feed, but hn feeding it with a cup od flour and water and letting sit in warm spot, and then I have 2 cups of starter
If you try it, and need more directions, let me know.
