Sourdough & Feeding The Starter


Recommended Posts

Thought It was about time I cracked out one of these again. Its been so long since I did bread I didn't get them shaped quite as well as ld like. Also didn't get them off the peel cleanly and the ended up stuck together. Still taste great though. Just a white loaf. This ones from the river cottage handbook and I've never had it go wrong.

I'm new to the forum, currently doing some research into buying my first lever machine and came across this thread and thought I can contribute!   I've been having a go at baking sourdough f

Wife was moaning about the lack of originality in my design on the loads so made her a personalised one lol

Yesterday's loaf

Lovely looking sourdough Neill, how long was your starter in the fridge for ? I recently fed mine after about 3 weeks without feeding they're quite resilient little feckers!!

It was in the fridge for about a week. It was fed 2 days before baking, the morning of the day before then was used that evening to make a sponge. It could have been a bit more active to be honest. The pic of the starter was actually when I first made it with wholemeal. It's now converted to white.

Mine has been neglected and dried out in the fridge.

 

I'm going to reanimate it.

 

Its called 'David', after Edward and Tubbs son.

 

My son has named mine McQueen after lightening from Cars!

That is a really nice loaf OP, lovely aeration in the dough with a nice looking crust. I had a starter that had been going for a bout 3 years but binned it, I was the only one who liked sourdough.

 

Just a got an 8 seed cheese and malt proving now.

 

Some cheese scones and some fruit ones already done.

 

Not sure what to do next, might make some shortbread, can't beat something that has bread in it's name.

Forget that shite, it will bubble when it;s ready, did you use any activators (organic apple etc) or just flour? If just flour probably won't see anything significant for 3-4 days, as you say temp will affect it but it'll get there in the end.

 

I presume you have done it before?

If not a good tip is when they recommend throwing half of it away either use it as a sponge and make bread from it or use this batch to start and starter maybe wholemeal etc. Makes a really tasty bloomer.

Nah first time - couldn't find any organic grapes/apples in the shop last night so it's just flour. Should i still be feeding every 24 hours at this stage even if there's no action?
