Hello from Germany

May 20, 2008 - 9:35pm -- Lisa_in_Germany

Hi. Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Lisa and I am an American living in Germany. I have been here almost 8 years now. I am mother to 6 wonderful (sometimes) children and work part time as a waitress. I have always loved to cook, but go in phases. Sometimes it is the same old/same old and then I get tired of that and go on a binge of trying new recipes. My newest interest is baking bread. Although we can buy wonderful breads on every street corner here, i am still interested in learning to bake for myself.

Is kneading killing my sourdough?

May 20, 2008 - 7:17pm -- foolishpoolish

After a couple of successes in sourdough baking I have returned to the oh so familiar slump (3 failed bakes in a row - one raisin bread, one WW sandwich bread and a basic pizza dough).

There is virtually nothing in common between the 3 different doughs (either in build or ingredients) but all three exhibited the same problem.  A problem that has been almost a constant throughout my sourdough baking and which up until now I assumed to be just a 'quirk of sourdough based breads'.
