My Sorghum Sourdough Starter – Day 10

SORGHUM GF SOURDOUGH STARTER

This mornings video includes some information that will give us a better understanding of the “WHY” things happen as they do with our sourdough starter! I believe that KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, and we will build on this knowledge in the next few days as we prepare to make our 1st gluten free sourdough loaf!

Please watch the whole video (about 10 mins of education, with feeding at the end), you won’t regret it I promise! It’s only 10 mins of your time which will give you a lifetime of better sourdough! I will share with you what I know and we will gain some education from another home baker whom I admire, Hendrik, from “The Bread Code“. He is a self proclaimed science geek (like I am) so I think we are kindred spirits 🙂

On Day 11, we only have to feed our starters 1 x and we have no educational material, so its a quickie! So think of it as using your time from tomorrow, today! Enjoy!

FULL INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO – DAY 10 MORNING

SUMMARY

If you’re not having much activity yet, please watch the below video for more tips! đŸ‘‡đŸ»

I am travelling home tomorrow morning, bright & early, from my families cottage, so I needed to feed my starter 1x/day so I wouldn’t have to worry about dealing with it early in the morning. If this is ever the case for you, please follow the directions in my Day 10 evening video.

I’d like you to try doing this 1 FEED / DAY tonight so that you can practice & see what happens to your starter! YAY right? Only 1 feed in 24 hours! YIPPEE!!!

We will feed our starters again Day 11, in the evening! Remember though to check on your starter in the morning to see what happens, make observations, & learn more about your starter! After all, you’re now committed to loving it, and taking care of it like you would a child right? ♄

    Gluten free! I am so excited to be able to make an option for family members and friends that can’t have gluten. Nothing like fresh baked break when visitors come over! And bread 🍞 that is gluten free!! Thanks for the recipe.
