Almost given up...ww sourdough
I'm new here and to sourdough baking. In the last month, I've tried to make a starter twice and failed. I think part was due to the type of flour I used (it doesn't say whether it's bleached or not) and that I don't have a scale...like I said, I'm new to all this.
Going through this forum is overwhelming with all the new terminology and opinions. I still can't find unbleached flour but I did manage to find whole wheat. So this is what I have.
1. Is there a simple newbie friendly 100% whole wheat recipe I can use. I don't care if it's not soft like white bread...just something that can be used (for spreads) and eaten.
This one looks like a dream, but I don't have a scale and won't get one for another month or so.
2. Can I use bleached flour when prepping for baking? Or is it a complete no no? If yes, then I will try a white bread recipe.
