Making some bread with my homemade sourdough starter.
Start by getting out the Kitchen Aid and bread flour.
Just making a half-batch, so two cups of flour go into the bowl.
The homemade starter. Created by mixing flour and water together and letting sit out then waiting for yeast that's naturally in the bread and air to activate. Have had this for at least 3 years, probably 4.
Add a cup of starter to the flour. Then warm water, about 100 degrees or so.
Put on the dough hook, and let 'er mix.
Nice little ball of dough.
At this point I usually put it in the fridge for a day to rise and actuvate. But I want this batch to rise about 3 times, so I'm setting it in the warmest spot in the kitchen right now. Had to feed the starter so both are resting on the fridge.
