i just found this forum while I was looking for new sourdough information. I bought a book on breads a few weeks ago, and after a few attempts thought I'd try a sourdough. Got my sourdough starter up and running, using strong white flour and water. After about a week, it was happily bubbling away so I thought if make my first loaves, and here they are.
I was thrilled that they'd risen! After staring at them for ages, I sliced a bit off, tasted it, and raced round to take some to my parents and demanded that they try some (although to be honest they didn't really need any persuasion).
Anyway, happy as I am with them, it'd be good to get some feedback on them and ideas on how to improve.
