Since 2014

My sourdough was born in May 2016. I have a nephew who has diabetes and he wants to be a baker. I read an article about the lower glycemic index with sourdough, and thought that if I learned enough, maybe I could teach him.

Characteristics

Kevin is extremely healthy! He has a smooth tang that truly shows up in the finished bread.

  • 100% Well water

Feeding ingredients

  • 10g Starter
  • 100g Unbleached ap flour
  • 100g Water
1
I found that with added yeast recipes, I needed to make Kevin leaner. Otherwise, my dough would blow out during both rises. So I opted for a 10% inoculation and 100% hydration

Working method

1
Following the instructions from King Arthur Flour's website, I mixed equal amounts of whole wheat flour and our well water, left at room temperature and discarded and fed every 12 hours for 2 weeks or so. We live in the country and my room temp was around 80F.
