I am thinking about making a sourdough bread, anyone got any suggestions, thoughts, tips etc.
lots of info on Google Dave
Its on my list of things to do
hardest requirement seems to be a suitable starting culture.
You might get a starting culture from Annalise @ Jaquesbakescakes in Hinckley.
I know they just moved so maybe internet for contact.

what about sourdough cake? look here
I can't remember where I read it, but you can make bread with beer - possibly something to do with the yeast ??

Just had a look at the Herman page this is the one to make your own starter - love the idea of passing it on
Do you have a go ? I bought a starter from a website and it worked well but it sort of grows and started taking over the fridge!
Found a good compromise was kicking the yeast off the afternoon before with a little flour then getting it going again next day and using it with a but more yeast as my culture
