Irma

Since 2018

My first starter, Pellolainen (or "The one from town of Pello") was a beautiful 70 years old rye starter and, what a charmer was he. Unfortunately he met his destiny during my firstborns baby year, when my husband cleaned the fridge. Then nearly 4years later I have Irma <3

Characteristics

Irma is steady and calm - like a lady. She has not been over her jar not a single time, but when the time of action is near, she slays like a boss.

My sourdough is fed basically when needed and depending on the type of bread (and acidity) it is going to be used. Irma stays her feeding days in room temperature. All the other days Irma lives in the fridge. Normal feeding is 1:2:2 Or 1:3:3
