A questino regarding the crumb of Sourdough Bread.
I am German, living in the UK for 17 years now, could not find good bread here so started baking my own.
Now, everyone wants this very open crumb, those big holes, I am surprised because, in Germany you do not strive for that, in fact, people I think would see it as a fault in the bread.
So , I grew up with bread that had a tight * but not dense * moist crumb.
I just mention it because I do not know where it comes from that the crumb should have those big holes.
