First loaf from wild yeast leaven
I have been loitering in the background reading up on everyones experiences and great advice. Six days ago I started a wild yeast leaven which has been kept at room temperature and fed twice a day. This morning I noticed that it had become very active overnight so I scooped out a ladel of starter and made a sponge. This evening I have made a 100% whole wheat sourdough loaf. It took four hours for the first rise and then another three to prove in the banneton. Running out of time I decided to go for the bake and this is the result:
I am quite pleased and also looking forward to inspecting the crumb after it has cooled down.
