Hello from Vancouver
I had discovered this wonderful site about a month ago. Intrigued by so many interesting messages, I have also started posting a few entries without introducing myself...
How did I get started on making sourdough bread? It was the unusual hot summer we had this year in Vancouver BC. I was thinking, it should be a good time to learn about sourdough and start creating a starter. So my first starter was born around late July this year. My journey of sourdough has begun. Currently, I am maintaining two starters: rye and whole wheat.
Due to my work schedule, I usually make bread over the weekend, so I keep my starters in the fridge, feed them once a week when I use them. Sometime someday I'll try getting up in the middle of the night so I can make bread during the week ;)
I can't tell you how much I've learned from this website. Thank you everyone!
Happy learning and oven-springing!
