  • Day 7 – Sourdough Starter

    Day 7 – Sourdough Starter

    I tried a float test today to see if my sourdough starter is ready. It isn’t. I fed it today and will leave it for a day or two. These daily updates will stop but I will definitely make a video if and when I can make a loaf of sourdough. I’ll make videos about…

    Day 6 – Sourdough Starter

    That film of liquid is back. It’s called, “hooch,” and it’s not harmful. It’s a sign that the starter is hungry. Today, I fed it with 100 g of flour and 75 g of water, same as yesterday. The time lapse I tried to make over the last day didn’t work because I didn’t leave…

    Day 1 – Sourdough Starter

    Who hasn’t wanted to make sourdough in the last two years? I thought I’d give it a go. After watching a number of videos and reading a few articles, I decided to just go ahead and see if I can’t get something to work. I’m going to try to track my progress over the next…
