Since 2013

I love the toasted sourdough bread and because it's healthy and helped in digestion. I decided to start culture my own starter 3 years ago and bake until now.

Characteristics

I maintain as white starter, it was first created using rye flour to make it active then eventually change to white. It's very active starter and I bake sourdough at least once a week. I used around 16-25% of starter in my sourdough and it doesn't give me sourness but sweetness in flavor. Occasionally i take some of the starter and turned into 50% or 60% stiff starter.

Take it out from fridge and leave at room temperature for a while. I usually feed 80-100g flour and water with normal plain flour. So total is about 200g. I discard the old starter, leave around 40g to feed with new flour and water.

Working method

1
TheBees is about 3 years and 2 months now. I keep at 100% hydration. Feed at least once or twice a week and keep around 200g in total. Before each use I refresh it at least once, occasionally I leave my starter at room temperature for few days and keep feeding to increase the counts. I sometimes take some and turned into 60% starter.

Green Tea and Sweet Potato Sourdough

This sourdough is special because of the colour combination with green tea powder and purple/orange sweet potato puree.
