Sourdough in a Breadmaker: Questions
I've been reading over several threads on sourdough and have also been researching methods of making sourdough starter. However, I'm under the impression that some starters won't work in break machines (since they rise at different rates than dry yeast.) I have a Breadman Ultimate breadmaker but I live in a college dorm so I don't have a whole lot of access to an oven or even really a kitchen. I have a small fridge, which I intend to keep the starter in, but before I start I just want to know more about starters and breadmakers. Can I put "wild" starters (ones that don't have any yeast added to the starter, but rather just some water and flour) into a bread machine? I ask because all three recipes I've seen for bread machines use some yeast. Please, if anyone has experience with sourdough bread in a breadmaker (especially recipes for use in a breamaker and good starters) please share them in this thread! Any and all other advice on sourdough making in a bread machine would also be much appreciated! Thank you!
