The challenge! And the promise of the best tasting bread ever!

Characteristics

Very active, very strong. Triples every 6 hours or so, requires frequent feeds at 1:2:2 throughout the day. Holds peak for about 30 minutes before falling. Firm at peak - which is when I like to use it as a levain. Smells sweet, mildly sour.
