New bread enthusiast in Atlanta
Hi, I just found this website recently as I was researching baking stones. I just started baking bread this past year and only seriously in the past couple months. My wife is from Germany and I have never been the same since I first visited her there in 2001. I decided if I can't find good European bread here in Atlanta, I've got to bake it myself. I'm really just learning and experimenting so far. I tried a bunch of recipes with little success, then finally bought Local Breads a couple months back and started getting serious. Last night I made some great-tasting Dreikornbrot. It's really the best thing I've done by far. The rye starter didn't look exactly like it's supposed to, but the finished product was good. I also tried a stiff dough levain, but did not have the same success. Anyway, I'm excited that I found this forum to get ideas and ask questions about all the stuff I'm having trouble with.
