Hydrating active yeast in my homegrown wild yeast

March 25, 2011 - 6:27am -- fants123

Ok, I started playing around with yeasts, I have become really good at raising and keeping my wild texas sourdough starter. My question is, will it make any difference if I use 100g of my texas wild yeast instead of 100g of filtered water to hydrate my active yeast. I am just making a basic white bread loaf. 

My texas sourdough starter is 1:1 flour water and is about a couple weeks old, And has a good rise on a 16 - 18 hour rise.

I mixed the flour and water let sit for 30 minutes
