62 and New to Sourdough Baking

Hi all!,

As the title states, at 62 years old I finally decided to give sourdough baking a try and I’m hooked! I’ve made about 4 loaves over the past two weeks and I’m absolutely loving this newfound (for me) way of baking. I live in the Los Angeles area and work full time so I only bake on the weekends. I just found this site today and look forward to hearing everyone’s tips and tricks and learning more about bread baking in general!

Enjoy the journey, have fun, and don't be too critical of your first attempts. 98% will be quiet tasty, even if not perfect or pleasing to the eye. 

 On a related note. I have a supply of dehydrated Slow-Mo I keep for an emergency. If you're in need of a proven seed for your sourdough culture, I am happy to share.

Best regards,

Will Falzon
