    Working with a new flour

    Well, pretty good first run on my new starter. I bought a really cheap flour in bulk, and fed it, ignored it, worked it through various temps, hydration levels, etc.. finally thought I may have an understanding of this starter.

    1000 g bread flour Dakota Mill
    25% levain
    68% hydration
    2% salt

            Looking great as usual Richard!!!!


              That's good stuff there.


                that looks so good. my mom and a group of extended family members used to have a sourdough starter that was really, really old and was passed around family to family over the years. i'm not sure where it ended up but i do recall eating some great homemade sourdough bread when I was a kid!


                  It looks a little off to me. Whip up a couple more loaves and send them to me via UPS. We are close enough that they won't take more than a day, two at the most to arrive. Once I get them, I will do a full inspection and analysis of their quality. As a courtesy, I will provide you with a detailed report free of charge. This is a limited time offer! SO ACT NOW!
