The Creature

Since 2015

I have baked many years and had several sourdoughs earlier. This is just the latest. Actually I have a white sourdoough too, so I can switch between the two. They have different qualities. Earlier I have had rye bread sourdough starters too but at the momemnt just the two.

Characteristics

It has a sweet bvase - probably due to the apple in the original starter. Is active and doubles after the feed approx 4 -5 hours later. Peaks at about 6 hours, max 7 hours. Often it does not lift the bread enough without a hybrid addition of some store bought yeast but the flavour it imparts is always great.

Working method

1
The Creature started as a Paul Hollywood sourdough starter, see http://paulhollywood.com/recipes/sourdough-starter/ Then it evolved and I maintain it using Teresa L- Greenway's 100% hydration starter. As I am in Denmark, I use Danish flour types one is a coarse stone milled whole wheat the other a stone milled white old historic grain flour (Øland)..

Result

White and mixed breads, pancakes, baguettes, dinner rols
