Enzo the Third

Since 2011

I've been curious about sourdough bread for few years since it's not available at my town. The cheapest way to taste it is making them at home instead of flying to Europe or USA.

Characteristics

The ripe starter smelled sweet-creamy/milky with a hint of fruitiness if I let it ripened in the fridge. The bread baked with this bread usually have very subdued tang, it's not a very sour kind of sourdough. But curiously my friend baked a very sour bread using my starter. The sourness level depends on how you handle the fermentation process which can be varied from kitchen to another kitchen.
