  • I keep my starter in the microwave , when it is out of fridge . As it keeps it at a constant temp . Ps pop o post it note on microwave telling those & yourself included to take starter out before you turn microwave on to heat anything 😏

  • leav•en /'levən/
    1. a substance, typically yeast, that is used in dough to make it rise.

    Yes, you can overmix dough. It will be dense with a hard crust.

  • I guess you don’t like a dark crust😳

  • Hi, your way of making the sourdough is really good. If I may give you a little trick. When you are working your dough and it is stick, try a bowl with some water and wet your fingers a little bit. Like that the dough doesn’t stick. And I must say wicked awesome way. And best regards from Germany. 5 thumbs up 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  • On ebay many people sell dried form, not hard to revive… Don't bother with the fancy sourdoughs, they may taste like that and they may contain some of those you send bacteria from that environment but eventually it becomes yours because it populates the yeast and bacteria from your environment

  • Loved your video, new subscriber 🙂 I am looking forward to trying your recipe. I wanted to know what brand of dutch oven you use with the heart handle? It is so cute.

  • Thank you for doing this amazing video with many details! I really appreciate that you took the time to show us the importance of making this bread in three days and slowing down to do it right! Even waiting after you get it out of the oven to cut it is crucial Thank you!

  • What is your starter feed measurements??

    Noel Labb 24/11/2022 pm11:02
  • Hi nice video you got here, may l suggest using rice flour to dust the cloth you are using to put your dough in, it really does help prevent it sticking better than normal flourq👍👍🇬🇧🌹

    Shady Bad 24/11/2022 pm11:02

  • When you remove your dough from the refrigerator, are they resting to room temperature before you bake them, or are you baking them when they're cold?

  • Rice flour is great for dusting the bowls. There isn't any gluten so it won't stick to it.

  • Made my first sour dough today! Followed a lot of tips from this video and referred back to this constantly while making! Turned out so yummy! 2 loaves and one is already more than half way gone😂 Thanks so much for the inspiration and guide! I ordered a starter off Etsy, and downloaded the sourdough for beginners guide you linked. Only thing is I noticed my bread was very moist throughout the whole process, as well as I fermented on the counter way too long as I left it out as I went to bed. Florida life .. hot + humid = less water + less time. But like you said – the craft shall be perfected in time 🙏💕
