    Hello! New here, looking forward to getting to know everyone and learn from you! I've done a lot of reading up on sourdough starter but haven't found anything that tells me what to put back into the starter.

    So I use some starter to make my levain. Then I'll be mixing the levain into my other ingredients to make my final dough. My question is do I take a small portion of the levain to put back into my "mother" starter prior to mixing the levain into my final dough? How much, assuming my starter is 100g? I've heard of some of the new dough always going back into the starter, but haven't read whether it's the levain or final dough (which would contain some salt and other ingredients I don't imagine you would want carried over into whatever else you'll be baking with it)

    Any clarification on this would be appreciated! Thanks!
