Plea for sourdough starter in the Greater Cincinnati, OH area

I am off for 2 weeks and would very much like to bake breads while in the Cincinnati area.  Is there anyone who is able to share a bit of sourdough starter for my home baking needs? I will be in West Chester, OH the 2 weeks starting Dec. 19;  I am able to pick up at any location.

Thank you in advance and happy holiday baking to everyone!

I am in Wooster, if you're up for it. :) I have more than enough 100% hydration starter to go around. Quite a bit of a drive, tho, from where you'll be.

You are right!  Wooster is very very far from Cincinnati.

Thank you for your kind offer though.

Happy baking this holiday season!

I work there. I can refresh some and take it to work if you want to meet me at 2:00 p.m. when I get off. Working Monday through Thursday this week.

Matt,

It appears the reply I sent yesterday through my tablet did not register.

Can you save some for me and tell me where I can pick it up? I can easily drive up to Middletown.

My number is 513.519.6904.

Thanks,

teresa

Teresa,

Will Wednesday be soon enough? I'm already at work this morning. I will call you this evening to arrange for pickup.

This is so interesting, I hope we will learn if this took place (got the starter) and then what the results are when it is used. Good luck, Jean P.(VA)

Hi Matt!

Just say the word.

Thanks,

Matt,

I made a very flavorful SD boule with your starter.  Because of my timing, my dough was over-ripe when I finally baked it, but it still came out nice and tangy.  The leftover heated well a few days after the bake and paired quite nicely with fresh goat cheese. Thanks again very much!
