Pertsa Perusjuuri

Since 2018

It has been on my mind for years, then I found Eliisa Kuuselas book "Leipävallankumous". And that was the final kick to make my own starter.

Characteristics

Pertsa needs to be fed often and the he gives fluffy breads whit thick crust. He loves some sweet time to time. And if I leave him for too long he starts to mope.
