white spelt bread

Hello I am not so sure vif this fits here but if not please forgive me. 

I have been asked to make a spelt bread for someone who says she would like to have spelt in stead of rye.To date i hve only mixed white and spelt flour to make some bread.. I have white spelt four and is keen to use it for this trail . What i do not know or have is a formula for a white spelt  sourdough bread. Can anyone please help.

Thank you in anticipation.

using the search function with white spelt SD as the key.

This was recently on the home page.  It is a combo YW and SD starter high percent spelt and hydration since it is a ciabata.

If you want SD bread then forget the YW and double the SD starter to 200 g.  To make it a bread cut back on the water until you get the 70% or so hydration you are comfortable with.

The search turned up more than 10 pages of listings.  If you want a 100% spelt, 100% hydration mwilson did one recently on his blog and can be found there.

What % of swhite pelt are you looking for?

Hi Albert

if you want a 100 % white spelt, mwilson has a fine recipe here

it is 100% hydration and not for the feint of heart but you can tone down the hydration to a one that might suit you better.
