Good morning! (New here ...)
Good morning, everybody. I am new here, found the site while looking for more information on sourdough baking. (Background: We live in the US, on a Midwestern farm about an hour from the Great Lakes. We often raised a lot of wheat). For health reasons I'm trying to avoid all processed foods and sugar, which interested me in baking my own bread. I used the King Arthur site to begin sourdough starter with red whole wheat and filtered water back in January. At first it was like milking cows again because I had to do chores, feeding it AM and PM. It seems to be doing OK. I use KAF organic bread flour for baking and still feed Starter whole wheat flour and filtered water. (I'm afraid to give it straight up well water because of iron and limestone in it.).
