Wally Wheat

Since 2017

Been making sourdough for over 35 years. This starter was created after moving from Seattle to Ohio for a job transfer.

Characteristics

Nutty, sour and rich. Slow growing, but worth the wait. I named it after a friend in Cincinnati who absolutely hates sandwiches and won't eat one - but will eat an entire loaf of artisanal bread on one sitting.
