Spaghetti Factory Sourdough

So I've been baking bread on and off for years, and a few months ago started successfully making sourdough. I currently have two wild-yeast starters in my fridge and have made quite a few very good loaves using absolutely no commercial yeast - very cool!

 

However, I'm not getting a big flavor "kick" I'm looking for. One example, for those of you who know this chain, is the sourdough at the Old Spaghetti Factory (mostly a western US chain, I believe). If you know their bread, do you have any idea how they get their intense flavor? I'm not sure it's just intense SOUR, but a really strong flavor that really say "sourdough", at least to me.

 

Thanks in advance,

John

Hello twobottles,

I'm obviously not familiar with this particular bread, but commercial bread factories often use flavour enhancers to make what they call 'sourdough'.

Graham has a bit somewhere on this site about 'fake' sourdough.

Good luck with your projects

I make my own yogurt and I use the whey leftover from the yogurt making process as the liquid in sour doughs that I want to have a more sour flavor.
