Coorg coffee King

Since 2015

Started baking sourdough breads in 2012 when I made my first wheat starter(4 yrs old).The natural way a bread can be made fascinated me. It is healthy and the crunchy crust and chewy crumb really tickled my palate. The way it can be savoured for breakfast with just butter and the way it can be enjoyed with a lot Indian dishes only accelerated my taste buds to confirm me to have it infinitely.

Characteristics

1. It is a very vigorous starter / strain of yeast. 2. Once it is fed & immediately put in the fridge, it only keeps rising. Never falls. 3. Every day you open that airtight container, it is only hissing & fuming & even after 7 full days of being in fridge. 4. The air pockets remain large in fridge for up to 5 days 5. The starter is always thick, stringy even after a week in fridge.
