Starvin' Marvin

Since 2016

I realized that in my seventy years of life, I've never tasted wild fermented bread. I always assumed that the sourdough bread in our bakeries was the real thing! I saw Michael Pollan's TB program COOKED and learned what real bread is!

Characteristics

It is only a few weeks old as I am new to sourdough baking. However it is doing a nice job on all my bakes. I however am in the learning curve. So, I have made a few mistakes along the way. I once tried to bake without my leaven passing the float test--poor result. Then, I once allowed it to over-proof--bad result (it was edible and tasted fine....just not as high and the crumb was too dense

Recipe

Starting ingredients

  • 50% Organic unbleached flour
  • 50% Organic red wheat berries home ground
  • % Filtered water to make a heavy batter

Feeding ingredients

1
Take it out of the refridgerator. Let it warm up. Discard all but a heaping Tablespoon. Add 200 grams or a bit more in order to make it batter-like of 24C water and 200 grams of 50% organic unbleached white flour and 200 grams of 50% whole wheat flour. Use some to bake the next loaves and some goes back into the refrigerator for next week's.

Working method

1
I went according to the Tartine book with the 50% organic unbleached flour and 50% (home ground) whole wheat flour. I set it out on the counter until bubbling, then fed it over a period of time until mature. Now it's the source of all my baking exploits.
