rule of thumb when replacing yeast with starter?
« on: September 24, 2010, 06:12:11 PM »
Hey guys, odd question;

I know that all starters behave and leaven differently, but is there any sort of rule of thumb when replacing your IDY or ADY with starter in terms of some sort of conversion factor?

Peter,

Thanks so much for the prompt reply, those websites are looking to be pretty informative at an early glance.  I will study them and use that as the groundwork for future recipe conversions.

As of this time, I was hoping to use one of my sourdough starters in place of the yeast used in Glutenboys recipe, I think I'll need to study for a bit to determine the appropriate amount of starter to use in place of such a small amount of yeast.
