Sourdough

I confess, I have a marvelous little starter I feed daily and bake bread with it quite regularly. Bread and pizza mostly, pancakes too with the throwaway stuff..The current one is from San Fransisco, USA. I got a bargain German made grain mill so I usually get local organic (landrace? pre-modern era) wheat berries from a local healthfood store and grind my own fresh flour. That said the stores have a wider selection of flours these days as baking as a hobby during covid lockdowns seem to be a thing to do for quite many people and thats great for me too !!

Anyone else love making sourdough bread? My 2 favorites are jalapeno-cheddar ⬆️and olives-hazelnut ⬇️ combos with 20% wholewheat 80% AP, hydration usually 90´s ...



(courtesy Perfect Loaf ) I add pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts depending on mood..

I am a beginner really, started by making my own starter with just water and flour, 50/50 in weight, let it stay covered over my fridge for a few days until it started frothing and smelling sweetish/sour, the fed it daily with the same ratio discarding 80% of the old one away... Nowadays I use dried one based which I ordered from Ed Wood´s but have since gotten hold of fresh ones from local restaurants and bakeries.. Those I dried for future use and backup.. As you are experienced with no-knead style transition from bakers yeast is not steep curve to learn at all.. Ed Wood´s site has a recipe section which I think is useful.

Awesome! Choosing between those 2 loaves would be tough. :)
