Is There a Way To Obtain Local Yeast??
From what I have read, fungi is everywhere. I just read a thread about beginning a wild yeast sourdough with the fungi that is on the purchased wheat berries.
I have heard that even though you can start with an obtained source for sourdough starter, eventually, local fungi will take over the starter, that makes sense, to me. The local fungi are best suited to the local conditions.Therefore the local fungi should be able to "take over" the wild yeast sourdough starter that you nurture.
If your starter is gonna end up there, why not start with that??
So, my question is, "Is there a best source for the local fungi?"
I cultivate a LARGE fungi crop in my garden. I have added many tons of compost to the garden.
The pleasant smell when soil is turned over is due to fungi.
Is this a good source of fungi for a sourdough starter? Is there a way to "move" the fungi from the garden to a starter??
If not the garden fungi, where else should I pursue to obtain "my" local fungi??
