Sourdough Bread

Welcome to role i of a 2 role video serial for how to brand sourdough bread, amongst naught to a greater extent than than flour in addition to water. If you’re thinking I already did this before, well, nosotros did, variety of. I did a multi-part serial for this long ago, simply it was horribly shot, confusing, in addition to the results weren’t good. Other than that, it was fine.

Anyway, thank you lot to an amazing refresher course of teaching from Northwest Sourdough (which I highly recommend you lot banking concern jibe out, in addition to subscribe to), I decided to accept those videos down, in addition to produce an updated, 2-part recipe. There’s actually naught similar homemade sourdough, in addition to nevertheless the fourth dimension it takes for your starter to mature, it’s a really simple, in addition to slowly process.

I similar one-half spelt, in addition to one-half breadstuff flour, simply this volition operate amongst pretty much whatsoever combination, including all wheat flour.

I never similar to larn besides deep inward the weeds when showing a technique, in addition to thence if you lot produce desire all the Latin terms, in addition to detailed explanations for what precisely is happening here, at that topographic point are endless resources online. All I attention close is that this works. After the mo day, toss away one-half your mixture, feed amongst equal parts flour in addition to water, expect for the microorganisms to produce their thing. Stay tuned for role two, or every bit I telephone yell upward it the proficient part, where we’re going to brand a loaf of incredibly beautiful, tasty bread, in addition to every bit always, enjoy!
