Sozzy (S for Sourdough and Ozzy for Aussie)

Since 2018

I have always loved the taste of sourdough but cannot buy artisan loaves locally, so I finally decided to have a go myself - and was instantly hooked! It’s taken a while to get a robust starter that I can get consistent results with, but my last few bakes have been ‘proper’ sourdoughs. Beyond excited!

Characteristics

Sozzy is very active and gets fed once a day - one tablespoon of starter, plus 2 tablespoons of spring water plus 3 tablespoons of flour. My flour mix is currently 25% whole-wheat, 25% Khorasan and 50% Bakers unbleached white (all organic). The flavour is slightly sour with a rich, almost fruity but still savoury aftertaste. The smell has strong sour notes but still smells fresh.

Early days for me, still experimenting with sourdough loaves, so have only made bread with my starter so far.
