Thete are quite a few of us Canadians here and our host, Floyd lives in Vancouver. I am in Northwestern Ontario right at the head of Lake Superior.

Great combination! They seem to go hand in hand. Does all the yeast floating around your place ever give you any problems with off flavors in your beer, due to wild yeast? I jumped from brewer to baker, so the two haven't crossed paths.

Welcome to TFL! I’m a newbie and by that I mean a newbie to baking sourdough bread. Can’t wait to share experiences especially what flour you use. I’m still playing around with that here in Quebec.
