I'm still new to baking trying to work with sourdoughs and levains. Really enjoy it but still trying to master the perfectrye loaf.
You will find this site is full of people who are happy to commiserate, advise, counsel and entertain you during your quest for great bread. No matter how many times I fall short of perfection, I am always encouraged by what I read here.
A tip: Be sure to read Floyd's lessons. Even if you are aiming for a different kind of bread, his guidance is very helpful when you are trying to reach that next level.
