Hubert

Since 2017

I've been baking sourdough for over 30 years, and have decided to try starters from around the world. This was an experiment that was successful!

Characteristics

It's quite pungent. I'm happy to report that the rotten cheese/vomit smell dissipated after becoming fully active. It now smells fruity with a hint of sour. Very nice.

Recipe

Starting ingredients

  • .75Cup Artisanal white flour
  • .75Cup Water

Feeding ingredients

1
Continued feeding a 50/50 mix of flour and water. Used the proofing feature of my oven, set at 90 degrees Fahrenheit for the first 24 hours. It smelled TERRIBLE - like someone had vomited stinky cheese.

Working method

1
I purchased this starter from Sourdoughs International as an experiment. Mixed the flour and water according to the directions accompanying the starter. It took longer than expected to become fully active, and smelled like rotten cheese until it did. I almost discarded it, but glad I stuck with it.

Result

Boule

This starter makes a delightful, authentic-tasting boule. Makes a terrific sandwich. Made extra to freeze - freezes well
