Sourdough or yeasted?

Hello!

i have been trying to make croissant for the pass few weeks. 

Came along 2 different type of croissant recipe. 

One use yeast and another one use sourdough starter

May I ask do anyone know what is the real difference between this two method? Other than time consuming.

It's a matter of taste.  Your choice.

Keep it simple and use yeast. Croissants are tricky enough without adding the complexity of sourdough.

You can make excellent croissants with yeast; once you've got to that stage, by all means investigate the sourdough versions.
