Number four

Since 2010

I like baking. I didn't want to constantly buy commercial yeast. I wanted to produce my "own yeast". An this was sourdough. My curiosity caused me to dive into the depths of the sourdough.

Characteristics

I'm in love with my NUMBER FOUR starter. I feed it with Bulgarian spring water from Rhodopi Mountains. I use my own flour mixture for feeding it - 10% WW and 90% AP flour from a local mill. It gets active for 3-4 hours. The smell of home made sourdough bread is soooo delicious. Yummmi!!!
