Sourdough starter making
« on: January 19, 2021, 10:47:13 AM »
I'm sure the topic's been covered before in here, but being lazy . . .

Wife made a new sourdough starter that has been bubbling away on the back of the stove since last Thursday.

A test loaf is being baked to sample for taste. Yummy!

She's using All-Purpose flour, but, any suggestions for different flours? Is there such a thing as strictly a bread flour?

There is specifically a bread flour.  It is higher in gluten.   Builds a lot of gluten during kneading.     

For other options, you can buy other grains like rye and barley to blend in for different textures and flavour.

I make any breads with it, rye breads are very suited, but these are the most well lik

  Will have to do them at the muster this year.

It appears I will live and be able to function at a slightly reduced rate, the loading and unloading is going to be the worst and I have help on this end and likely will not
have no problem at the other end.   ;)
