Since 2013

I have a very sensitive and weak stomach. I can't eat quick yeasted bread. I remembered the store bought doughnut caused me puked after consumed. Any bread that doesn't goes through proper fermentation will irritate my stomach and i will keep burping. My first hybrid sourdough bread was given by my neighbor and i was so impressed that it doesn't irritated my stomach.

Characteristics

It always give my bread very good oven spring, dark in color, lot of bird eyes and well aerated crumb. Very satisfaction every time i see my bread has beautiful hue and ear.

I started my levain Bella 3 1/2 years ago by using California Golden Raisins. I maintained Bella at RT 28C for initial first 3 weeks with 2 feedings at interval 12 hours per day. Bella grows strong and vigorously. Recently i converted my Bella into 50% hydration. Mineral water and good grade of bread flour used in my daily feeding.

In order to build up the strong foundation of my starter, i feed it at 100% hydration twice a day and keep it in room temperature 28-30C for 3 weeks before i put it into refrigerator. I didn't retard my sourdough more than 12 hours initially. The result is kinda good for beginner like me that time.

I managed to convert my whole family members to eat my sourdough bread and they love it. I hope more people to get know of the benefit of eating sourdough bread.
