My sourdough is SO sour....
I guess I don't even know what a "good" sourdough is supposed to taste like. Does Market Street or a similar high end groery store sell sourdough bread that is made in store? Maybe I can establish a "baseline" if I taste a pro's sourdough.
Mine is extremely sour. I've used Ed Wood's new Zealand Rye starter to make some sourdough World Bread.
The recipe calls for letting it sit for 12 hours and then adding some flour and water and letting it sit for another 12 hours. Due to a crazy schedule, I had to let it sit for longer than 12 hours each time.
When I needed in the final amount of flour to let it rise one final time in the pan, I noticed that the dough smells VERY sour.
Is this normal?
