I just converted this to a sourdough (levain) recipe and it has turned out great. Yeasted version is way quicker but doesn't have the taste. Great taste and texture, really good with PBJ.
I am quite new to this site and live in a smallish town. I am trying the levain in Local Breads. Has anybody tried this without organic flour? and to what end? I am on day 2 with reg. grocery store bread flour. Any input would be appreciated.
I put together an Excel workbook for working with bread formulas. Although there are other similar tools on this site, this one has some nice additional features. Let's say you have a formula for a sourdough bread, but you want to make a couple changes. First, you want to add 10% spelt flour, you want to up the hydration from 65% to 68%, change the salt form 1.8 to 2%, reduce the dough yield from 3.5 pounds to 3.0 pounds, and increase the percent of pre-fermented flour from 15-20%.
