Simple sourdough

Having spent some time experimenting I've now found an approach to making sourdough where...

- I only have to do anything to my starter once a month (or less!)

- I can make bread whenever I want it without having to refresh my starter beforehand

- I can bake to a flexible schedule (e.g. 5 minutes before I go to bed at night gives fresh sourdough for lunch the next day)

- it takes less than 20 minutes total effort to produce two loaves

- it makes great-tasting / reliable bread!

I've posted my approach on my blog at  If you're interested check it out and I'd love to know what you think!
