My First Jeffrey Hamelman's 5 Grain Levain
Here is my first try at JH 5 Grain Levain - with actual levain from my sourdough starter. My previous versions of this bread were with only commerical active dry yeast. I was happy with it, except wished for more rise/height in the boule.
I think the seed topping is not part of the original recipe. I just can't resist the toasted seed flavour the topping ads to these kinds of breads.
Just wish I got the same consistent open holed crumb in my same day's bake of the Tartine Country loaf.
