Acme Sourdough Bread
My future SIL had a bachelor party in SF over the weekend and he was kind enough bring me a boule f the closest thing that Acme makes to traditional SFSD. It was a bit more than day old by the time I got it. Here is the website - they just call it Sourdough - http://acmebread.com/bread
It is a handsome loaf for sure. Deeply browned, scored perfectly with some blistering. I give it a 10 on looks alone. The crumb is moderately open for a bread that is all wheat grain - white flour. I give it an 8.5 on the crumb.
It is slightly sour as today's SFSD breads seem to be and it is a a total white flour bread made of wheat so the taste is pretty bland. I would prefer one with a bit of rye and spelt in it - say 5% each and one with a bit more tang to it so I give it a 7.5 for taste.
Overall it gets a 8.67 out if 10 - one fine bread for a balery that makes a lot of it. Now I have t make some cioppino to see how it sops up a fine fish stew.
