SOS Yeast Starter

SOS with my yeast starter!
Whole Wheat Einkorn
I made a double batch but from the beginning it was firm. 5hrs later, firm and drying out.
What happened?
Can I save this somehow?

  1. Are you making a starter or levain? Levain is made from a starter. The sourdough starter is firm and dry and the levain would be like a thick batter. Both should be covered tightly in between steps.

  2. yes it is suppose to be levain, but is too thick to be called a batter. It’s more like dough. It is a double batch so I wondered if that was a problem. Also I covered it with a towel as with traditional bread. So I am guessing plastic wrap is the way to go?
