My first sourdough loaf - is sticky dough normal?
Hi! I created a sourdough starter a week ago using SourdoLady's instructions and this morning I used the recipe for "Overnight Whole Grain Sourdough with Wheat, Spelt, & Rye" from this website to make my first sourdough loaf. The recipe doesn't say when to knead it so I kneaded it after I mixed all the ingredients together. (By the way I don't have spelt so I used 1 cup of bread flour instead.) The dough was very sticky so I kept adding more and more wheat flour. Is that normal? It's still kind of sticky (I've just mixed it together so it hasn't had time to rise yet)...should I add more flour and keep kneading until it's no longer sticky? Or is it supposed to be kind of tacky? Sorry if this is a silly question but I am just now learning. Thanks for any help!!
