starting with not so wheat flour
Hi all! I'm new here and I've been reading the past posts for a few days now. I am hoping to start a starter here in Korea to take back with me to the states. I really like it here and I feel as though this would be like bringing a little bit of Korea back with me... Anyway, the problem is, I can not find wheat flour anywhere. The wheat flour that is for sale here is I'm pretty sure, not 100% wheat or is very bleached because it's almost white and doesn't taste like wheat flour at all. My question is, will I get something growing if I use this? I don't want to wast flour, but I'd really like to give it a try. Should I put some bark from a tree in it? I've read that some trees have yeast growing naturally on them. I've also looked for Rye and there is none here. They do have buckwheat, but again, I think it's pretty processed.
