This bread will probably be real tangy SF style. I let the dough sit in the fridge for two days before kneading it into loaves this morning and letting it rise. That should get it really sour.

I've been known to throw together a loaf or two from time to time.

I've even done my own sourdough starter and fed it for weeks before it was ready. When he says it's a labor of love, it is really more like plain labor!

Just kidding it really is kind of rewarding when you pull a perfect loaf out of the oven.

Just had dinner with my wife's family tonight and made up a nice egg bread with a bunch of fresh basil and rosemary.

My grandmother taught me the basics of bread making years ago... Including the number one most important rule.

Reviving an old thread. Been getting into sourdough baking, like a lot have in these times. Did my first real bake (no added commercial yeast) this morning. Also first time using my new proofing basket. Happy with the results, but always room for improvement. Used a recipe and Dutch oven cooking technique from FoolProofBaking (search on YouTube).

Bought a new cast iron bread pan last week, from Challenger Breadware. Got to put it to use with another sourdough loaf. Big improvement over the previous loaf. Partly due to a longer proofing, but also from the pan. Allows me to crank the over to 500F, without fear of cracking the pan. With the dutch oven, I'd only go to 475F. And the pan holds the heat a lot better.

Bob,

Looks awesome.

My own sourdough improved when I bought Ken Forkish's book; Flour Water Salt Yeast.

His technique and instruction is great. And the story of his journey at the begining of the book isn't half bad either.

I've not had a bad loaf yet following his instructions.

If youre on Instagram, look up FullProofBaking or Jimchall for their methods. Jim owns Challenger Breadware. Has a method he calls KISSourdough. Keep it simple.

Default Re: Sourdough bread

First batch done, ugly as sin so I passed on taking a picture (think wide short and somewhat lumpy) but it did taste like sourdough, so I'll take that as a win. I know that I screwed a couple things up when making so my expectations weren't high for this run. Now that I'm familiar with the general process by doing it once myself I think it will be easier to compare recipes and understand tips online. Round 2 will likely be this weekend, looking forward to one day making a damn bread bowl for soup

Default Re: Sourdough bread

What process/recipe are you following, Ben?

I’m currently autolysing my flour. Went with 70% whole wheat white, 20% whole wheat, 10% dark rye. Doing a 75% hydration this time. Bumped it due to the extra bran in all the flours.

A mix of recipes combined with unsuccessful execution. Knew going into the oven it was gonna be ugly, but at that point I just threw it in figuring I'd already used the precious flour. I just used it to make a sammich for lunch, tasted pretty good

Lol! I know what you’re going through.

Try this - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HlJEjW-QSnQ&t=595s

It’s a time consuming process, but it’s worth the results. She uses 80% hydration. I’ve found 60-65% gives a better, tighter crumb for sandwiches.

I just finished mixing in my starter, salt comes next, then all the folds/lamination.

I assume it goes without saying, but alcohol was also involved

Thanks for the link, I'll check it out for sure. I'm fine with time consuming, aint got nowhere to be

Default Re: Sourdough bread

This was this mornings bake using my go to 24 hr recipe. Feed the starter yesterday morning, mix the dough late afternoon, shape loaves at night and into the fridge to rise overnight.

As you can see we all dug into one loaf already and is half gone. Recipe usually makes two 1.5lb boules. Decided this time to split one in half again at shapping and make batards. My shaping for them and for baquettes needs lots of work. Ha

Nice job Jason!

This weeks bake. Bought way too much white whole wheat, so I gotta use it up.

90% white whole wheat
10% dark rye
80% hydration

Whos baking?

Coming attractions of a sourdough baquette mashup I'm experimenting with.

Started yesterday making a poolish. Levain this morning using starter instead of commercial yeast. Will shape and proof overnight. Bake in morning.

May still use boules not decided.

Later this week I will be. Still eating thru the rye loaf I baked last week. Going back to 85-90% white, to the rest either whole wheat or rye.

Can’t wait to see your results.

I've played around with a couple things that have turned out fantastic (cinnamon rolls, crackers) but haven't tried bread again. I ordered parts for a makeshift proofing box which should be here today, this weekend I'll give bread another shot

So this is the all natural french bread from 2 days of fermentation. Same base recipe as the loaf above. It spent an extra 20 minutes in the oven than the above loaf and still did not darken. Smells of french bread through and through.
