My first sourdough bread and I made it with 50/50 freshly milled whole wheat
It's amazing this turned out as I mixed like three recipes to get to this one. NEXT time I will just use the recipe I found after I started this one!
But, I tried so many things new for the first time. First, it was a high hydration sourdough. I had been babying a whole grain sourdough for 2 months and I just today did the bake. It took two full days to do this recipe. That is a LOT OF COMMITMENT, so I was going to cry if it turned out to be a brick!
But, I did it and it's not a brick!
I did an attempt at incorporating more air during shaping, AND I baked it at a higher temperature and used two pans to hold steam.
It's still slightly warm ( was too impatient to wait to open it up, but it might be too sour. I'll see in the morning and if it is, I know what I can do to fix it for next time.)
Anyway, I'm proud of my first attempt at ANY sourdough and a 50/50 whole grain one at that!
