Since 2015

I'd been baking bread for a while and wanted a different, chewier, more complex bread.

Characteristics

It's pretty darned delicious. It's responsive even if I neglect it a bit. .

  • 20g Water

Feeding ingredients

  • 200g Water
  • 200g Flour

Again, pretty haphazard, but it seems to work for me. I keep it in a mason jar, though I have dried some out just in case. I dump out most and make waffles, then mix in about 200 of water and scrape down the sides. I then add about 200 g of flour for a batter that is stiff, and let it grow.

Working method

It can be haphazard at times. I think I used the method in "Dough" to create my starter last year (2015).

I kept at it through the odd smells and have a strong starter now

I had followed the schedule for refreshing and watched it bubble and get stronger

Result

Bread

It makes a delicious crust ( trying to edit and put bread and pizza in, but I keep getting kicked out. I'll keep at it.

Waffles

I can't bear to throw away so much great batter, so waffles are a great way to use up the batter
