First sourdough experience: Norwich Sourdough
Just wanted to share my first bread making experience and thank this site for the wealth of information, especially the detailed walkthrough on harvesting wild yeast with whole grain wheat and pineapple juice. All in all this came out pretty good. The crumb was a tad dense, not so much that it could be called rubbery or undercooked as there was a good spread of large, medium, and small holes, but it was a VERY filling loaf. I'm pretty sure this was a result of playing it fast and loose with the starter hydration and maybe the need for a little more proofing time. No one made these criticisms while making it vanish within the lunch hour. This was the Norwich sourdough recipe from the Wild Yeast blog.
