It has been months since I made SD. I had been using my dried starter when time to bake since I don't do very often and don't want to have to keep feeding starter. I decided to try to use the neglected starter that been sitting in fridge. With-in a hour after feeding it was all ready active. Fed next morning and doubled in couple hours. Got to ask why all the weekly feeding? I normally use Judy's, SmokinAl SmokinAl wife recipe for rye. Very quick bread and so good. I decided to use my normal SD recipe and sub 100 grams of rye for white and added caraway seeds. Also added 1 Tbsp Gluten. Let sit in fridge for 2 days. Wow is this good and came out perfect!

Wow Brian, that is pretty awesome looking stuff buddy. I've had Judy's sourdough and it's truly off the charts good!!

Nice look loaf Brian.

Point for sure
Very nice.
With just two of us, we freeze a lot of the bread I make.
Went on a week long Sourdough making binge a month ago or so.
Made crackers, bread, pancakes, and muffins.

Gotta eat what's in freezer now so I can make more. Haha
That looks great! I love it when it is still warm out of the oven!
I dry my starter. While very active spread it on some Parchment paper and let dry. You can buy it if don't have any to get started with.
Same... I put mine on the parchment paper and into the oven to dry.
Then grind it in a coffee grinder, vacuum seal in small 20g packets, and into freezer. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
