Since 2016

Been tested to be wheat intolerant as i kept feeling tired where most energy was used to break down wheat! I missed eating bread hence best to bake my own as fermented bread does wonders to our system. Don't feel bloated after eating SD bread.

Characteristics

Ewok is 25g rye, 25gwheat, 30g hydration and is only 2 weeks young. Was using a 100% hydration wheat flour starter as I embark on my sourdough journey. That was a mature starter from a friend back in late November 2016.

Newbie to SD journey. Initial starter was 100% hydration & changed it to 25g rye, 25g wheat & 30g water. Seems to be thriving well. The learning journey continues

Before showing the 2 loafs to the world, I had a few flops :( and I spurred on. Better results after #1 sourdough video from Teresa Greenway.
