Since 2018

I joined a bread baking group on facebook where they used to put pictures of awesome sourdough breads. Till then I did not know such awesome breads exist! That is when I decided to attend a workshop to learn these breads and rest as they say is history :-). Thanks to my teacher and my fellow bakers from the workshop, I have learnt a lot in the last 1.5 years. Still Sourdough always surprises me.

Characteristics

I created this in April 2018 so it is a very young starter - still a baby or a toddler :-). It is a slightly thick starter (although it is always at 100% hydration). It is lazy and takes its own sweet time to peak :-) - around 6-7 hours in the Indian weather condition (average temperature of between 27-30C except in summer when it is over 40C).
