Since 2016

I didn't want any more bread from which I didn't know the ingredients. and I had he Impression that everything bought from the bakery tasted the same and had the same mouthfeeling. As I like the taste of dark bread which cannot be achieved with yeast I decided to have my own sourdough.

Characteristics

Paula is about two years old and smells very fresh and fruity. The aroma given to my bread is simply wonderful. Paula is created from Roggenvollkornmehl and water, nothing else. I feed it with freshly ground flour every week. It's very active and it only takes a few hours till she fills her glas completely. I like it very much baking bread and other wonderful things with her „support“.

Feeding Paula once week with 50 % Vollkornmehl / 50 % water is suffienct to keep her alive. Before using it to bake I feed it twice one day before. As you recommend three times I shall try it :-) but in the past it worked fine.
