Since 2018

In Finland we have a rich tradition of baking ryebread using a starter and no commercial yeast. I had purchased a book about sourdough bread and I heard sourdough is healthy and good for my stomache so I deciced to try baking wheat sourdough.

Characteristics

My starter yields bread that is mildly sour, oven spring is quite nice when I bake, the crust s crispy and has a nice caramelization. The crumb is very even and the bread is fluffy.
