Agnes

Since 2014

I love a good crusty sourdough bread and what the store offered wasn't at all what I wanted. I also like the fact that I know exactly what is in my bread. So many years ago I made my first starter. It lasted for about 8 years before it went bad. My current starter is almost 4 years old.

Characteristics

It is very stiff. I will add more water to the starter I am using for bread if the recipe I am using is high hydration. "Agnes" is very forgiving. I have left her in the refrigerator and forgot about her for 3 weeks - fed her and she came right back to life.
