It was SOUR !
Before I found this site I had never tasted sourdough bread but fell in love with the photos of the lovely looking breads baked here. So I jumped right in and with a lot of help from several kind people at TFL and lots of trial and error I eventually had a starter ! So, Tartine book in hand, I proceeded to make Chad Robertson's Basic Country Bread. I was delighted with the resulting loaf - it looked exactly like the picture! Then I tasted it.......It was SO Sour!! I have to admit that after all the help I received I felt guilty not liking it! I am writing this as I've noticed some posts recently asking how to make bread MORE sour. My question is how do I make it LESS sour or is it possible to bake a lovely blistered loaf that is NOT sour ?
Happy New Year to All ! - Merlie.
