Since 2016

I needed a great challenge, so I started baking with sourdough, just to see if I could. I stopped running marathons and needed a new thing to be good at.

Characteristics

Strong and bold, when baking. Light in color. 2 parts wheat, 1 part rye, so I use it for both rye bread and wheat bread.

I hope to learn a lot more about sourdough and higher hydration in the future. - Also baking sweet cakes with sourdough would be a welcoming challenge for me.
