Sourdough adventure part 2
After last week's adventure, I decided to change a few variables and see what happened this week. I moved to a daily feed of Fester (my sourdough starter) of 30g of rye flour and the equivalent of water.
On day 5 I discarded most of the gloop, saving about three good sized tablesspoons, and added 100g of rye and 100g of water.
Day 6 I fed with 50g of each.
Day 7, I took 300g of the starter, and used it in this recipe, using an extra strong white bread flour for the (wet) dough.
Pretty pleased with how the first loaf turned out, despite having to scrape the dough off the teatowel in one place - which affected the rise in the oven. The crust is good, the crumb looks even, and sourdough bubbles are even. Tastes great too.
Also Fester has a new home in a Kilner jar.
More adventures next week.
