Since 2017

Plain curiosity - I'm a medical microbiologist, growing beasties at home seemed a fun thing to try and do. Also - being German, I luuurve bread, but find British supermarket breads very underwhelming.

Characteristics

JS is still avery young starter - he's just had his first few days without a feed in the fridge. Currently there is not yet a pronouced sourdough flavour to my breads.
