Since 2016

I retired this year and have always been interested in fermentation and baking. I spent a few weeks studying recipes on the Internet and finally took the plunge. I have had much more success since taking Teresa Greenway classes.

Characteristics

My starter is very active. It doubles in about 2 hours when fed. It doesn't rise dramatically when mixed for the dough recipe, but, does have a great oven spring when baked.
