Galway Bay Sourdough

Since 1988

Working in the USA in the early 1980's I was introduced to the wonders of Sourdough baking.

Characteristics

Sour- similar to San Francisco sour with a sharp but pleasant aftertaste, The sour is quite old and has taken up the microbial activity uinique to the bakery its self. The bread made from the sour has a light open crumb and crispy crust.

Working method

1
The original sour was made using organic raisins, which were fermented in water. The raisin water was used to make a dough with organic rye flour. The rye sour was fed with wheat flour and water and remains today in liquid form in an Electrolux Fermento levain machine where it is fed daily. This liquid levain sour dough is over 28 years old The process is outlined below in detail.
