Canoe Creek Sourdough

Since 1987

Experimentation with something other than commercial yeasts. It has most certainly changed since it came to live with me.

Characteristics

Slightly sour in a way that emphasizes the flavour of the wheat. It has a fruity, yeasty nose and a slow bubbling that reminds me of lava flowing. The baked bread has a mild cheesiness that makes it very hearty.
