Hello All, 

I have just started baking my own bread. I have been on a quest to make the perfect pizza for a while (I'm getting pretty good). I also Homebrew beer, the concept of sourdough is fascinating to me (it is also referenced a lot in the discussion of wild yeast fermented beers).  I have started my own starter, and made a couple of loaves with it.  I'm following a lot of the info in Reinheart's Bread Bakers Aprentice

thanks in advance for all of the help!


Cheers, Cranny

bread and beer have a lot in common, grains and yeast. Also time and temperature is key in both.

bread baker's apprentice is definitely a great place to learn some technique and basics to fermentation and ingredients. Welcome!
