Nearly a month since my last post! Whoa!
I have just mixed a sponge which will hopefully turn into something tasty in a day or so. It is: 2 cups barley flour, 1 cup water, 1 tablespoon malt syrup, 1 cup sourdough starter.
When I wake up I'll add some more flour/water and update.
10:30 PM - 11:30 AM => that sponge sat for thirteen hours. I added two cups whole wheat flour, one half cup water, and around a half a cup of white flour. That was kneaded, and has now been sitting for just over an hour and a half. I'm going to punch it down, make it into loaves, let it rise again, then bake. Updates when delicious.
