Since 2020

I don't like yeast breads and I run out of yeast at home.

Characteristics

I don't know what to say. Since I moved to California, I never found good bread. Now it feel like being in Italy thanks to great flavor of this bread.

3
I add 10g of whole grain dark rye flour and 15g of all purpose flour and mix everything. Than I leave the starter at room temperature until it reaches its peak (until it doesn't grow anymore or when it just started to fall down).

Working method

1
Starter not used for baking. Usually just 10g because I keep a small amount, about 60g in total, to prevent throwing away excess.

2
Water to dissolve starter.
25g Water ~80°f
3
Dark rye flour because it has an high biological activity and maybe adds a sweet flavor (not 100% sure about this). All purpose as bulk component of the starter.
