Sourdough bread again

14 September 2010 § 5 Comments

Yesterdays bread turned out much nicer, than the bread before. I added more rye and less spelt, this time. While it was rising I added more water because I had the impression that the dough was to stiff but then I had to add more flour, too… The bread is very good. Good crust, light interior.

The sourdough has not been in the fridge yet, because I am baking at 3 days interval at the moment. This time though I had a very sour, vinegary starter and I feared that the bread would be too sour, but it turned out wonderful. Dark and light 🙂 I have the impression that the sourdough matures. This time I poured out all of it to bake, for continuing I used the dough that was stuck to the walls of my glass container. It is plenty enough. I have not washed the glass since the start, on the top part of the glass the dough is dry. I guess that I could use it as reserve in case my sourdough dies one day, I have to do this soon though if I don’t want it to get moldy (or mouldy??).

Next time I’ll try the dish towel method for forming the loaves.

Where Am I?
