My friend John...

Characteristics

Adam is mildly sour and when baked the bread doesn't have the overpowering sourness which I like. There is a slight after taste which is very pleasant. He is currently dormant in the refrigerator.

Recipe

Starting ingredients

  • 100% Organic whole wheat
  • 100g Distilled water

Feeding ingredients

1
I only feed during lavaine stage. This process worked well for a month and then Adam was not willing to cooperate with volume doubling process. :-(

Working method

1
Adam (100 g organic whole wheat, 100 g of distilled water) was born on February 4, 2017. He went through much turmoil because I refused to toss out half for subsequent feedings. Overpopulation must have been the problem.
100% Organic whole wheat 100g Distilled water
2
In a desperate attempt to revive sluggish Adam, I added a table spoon of organic non-fat yogurt 3 weeks after he was born. Since then he has been a new boy, vigorous and active!!
3
I baked my first boule with Adam not passing the float test. The result was not good... dense!!!

Result

Boules

I have made 5 so far and they all had something going wrong in different stages.

I don't know how I stumbled upon this site... I didn't think I needed to record the infancy of my sourdough bread making, but I like it very much that you provided such fantastic format to record my SD journey. Thank you!!! :-)
