Bassman sourdough recipe

    I keep reading all these posts on sourdough bread and I'm fascinated.  The wife has tried several times to get a starter going with no luck except the friendship bread thing, and it is really prolific.  I'd be glad to give anyone a starter from it along with a loaf if they were close enough

    don't think you could mail it succesfully.  Could this starter be used to make bread or to start a bread starter?  Everyone keeps refering to the "Bassman".  How do I get a recipe for his starter.  Being a newbie, I haven't figured out how to contact him yet.

    Well Old Man, you're in luck.  This other old man just happened to be on here this morning. [​IMG] If you'll just PM me your name and address, I'll dry some and get it out to you.  I'll include a copy of my bread recipe.[​IMG]

    I'd like that starter & recipe as well, if you would.  I'll PM you the pertinent info.  That might be a great touch to the smoked turkey dinner for TG!

    A couple of the folks have told me they already received their starter.  I have some more drying to send out to the late comers.  The colder weather is when I really enjoy making my bread and it makes the house smell so good!  Good luck to everyone who is trying this for the first time.  If you have any problems, feel free to contact me.
