I am a newbie here and to sourdough breadmaking.
My Patner is intolerant to wheat and bakers/brewers yeats but seems to handle sourdoughs made from spelt and other bakes good made from kamut.
So I figured since I used to enjoy making standard yeast based goods and I am home with a newborn, I might give sourdoughs a try.
I purchased a couple starters online rather than trying to make my own and I have an active sanfransisco starter that seems to be going ok, which has been fed on 100% Spelt since I started it.
The only things I have made so far are some pizza bases from excess starter from a recipe I found here I found here
and a dud trial loaf using some instructions I found somewhere online but obviously I totally messed it up. Still learning about hydrations etc
Looking forward to producing some nice loaves to go with all the soups I plan to make now the weather is cooling down.
I was planning on getting 25kg's of kamut and spelt as I gather I'll use a lot of flour, has anyone used Santos trading in Byron for supplies? I ahve ordered bulk spelt from organic suppiers on Melbourne before but the Santos stuff seems to work out quite a bit cheaper even factoring shipping into the equaltion. Plus they have kamut which I used to love baking with, but which has been nigh on impossible to source in the last few years locally.
