belated hello from Canada
I've recently started posting but haven't yet introduced myself.
I've made sourdough starters and various fermentations on-and-off over the years but only really got into sourdough baking recently. I've been processing an incredible amount of stress in my career life and discovered that sourdough baking is remarkably therapeutic.
I found the further I got into my bread adventure, the more I kept landing on this forum through google searches. I skipped the middleman and began to instead just come here directly. I've been impressed by the depth of knowledge, support and collegiality here: a very welcome antidote to what feels like a tense, antagonistic time in the world.
Learning about the world of baking, grains, agriculture, the science of fermentation, etc, has been a comforting little respite for me.
thanks for having me!
