Making a Sourdough starter with water kefir
I have neglected my sourdough culture in the back of the fridge and it looks and smells beyond recovery! I have water kefir (sugar, water & kefir grains/culture) which I regularly ferment for a probiotic drink... can I use this to make a super quick sourdough culture - e.g. mix flour and water kefir and leave overnight??? I have never made my own culture before. Has anyone done this using water kefir and how would you go about doing it?
In the meantime - is it possible to make a sourdough loaf and replace the water in the recipe with water kefir - would this work? Has anyone tried this before?
