Partially Self-Milled Sourdough

I did Maurizio’s beginner’s sourdough, from The Perfect Loaf, with some freshly-milled hard white wheat and rye in lieu of packaged whole wheat and rye.

Quite happy with how it worked out. The Grainmaker No. 99 never fails.

Thanks for the kind words. I mostly do brioche and waffles, but I’ve been dabbling in sourdough — a new-found interest. I like having a pet that I bake with ;)

Beautiful result, great oven spring and ears.  I have not been able to get those ears doing Maurizio's beginner sourdough yet.

Can you post a photo of the crumb?

That's one fine loaf.  Yes, baking with freshly milled grain is such a pleasure.  Please show us the crumb and your waffles and brioche.
