    Did it last long enough for you to take a picture of the inside Bart?

    It looks very attractive. I'm sure it tasted amazing. There's nothing that beats fresh bread.

    It was actually a bit disappointing. Very heavy which I seem to think is due to the starter which is only 8 days old. I maybe under correction but the older/matured the starter is the lighter the bread

    Portugese neighbours have a 15+ year old yeast plant starter from Portugal, which they got from family over there ages ago.
    I never knew about this type of baking yeast, always thought the dry stuff in the packets you buy is what everybody use.

    Don't give up your starter is still young, it will get stronger, the more you feed and times of feeding. I started mine during lock down and believed I got it perfected with the help on this thread.

    Then back to work, again and battling with the heat to bake again, have to feed and it put it to "sleep"

    So still learning, again look at flour and water you use, can't wait to give a few feeds and bake for the weekend, time permitting

    That looks good

    I've read that you can put the starter in a fridge say during the week then you don't have to feed it daily..... does this work in practice?

    It does work, I feed mine once a week, let it gain some activity, then back in the fridge, pull out about a day before you want to use it.

    Mine is a combo of Brown and rye starter. It has however started to get a bit of a acetone smell to it. Not sure if this is from the rye or something else.

    That's correct...feed it before you want to use it and wait for it to double in volume at room temperature...you'll need about 120g for a standard loaf.

    I'm doing something different today... After mixing yesterday and letting stand overnight and today... It's gone into the gas braai... And so far looking good after the 1st 20min...



    And I went 20% rye, 20% brown and 60% white... Left overs as I realized I was running low on flour...

    Made a quick one yesterday from the sourdough starter after I fed it to much and was trying to escape from the jar... Didn't put much effort into shaping or proofing...
