« on: September 25, 2014, 03:16:36 PM »
I just received two jars of starter from Don aka Donjo911.....thank you!   They were just feed some KAAP/DeerPark, since it was conditioned to bottled water. :-D  I'll post up results...and send you those seeds as payment.

Thanks Matt!  I just posted my garden pics as of this morning in the Garden 2014 thread. When you read / see the post, I hope you don't lose faith in me completely and decide there's a better place for your gift of seeds!  Thanks again!
Cheers,
Don

Mom baked a sourdough loaf.  It has a wonderful light crumb and very subtle flavors.

That looks GREAT! I like the structure! I'm glad it is working out and you like the flavor.  Your Mom has some mean bread making skills! Thanks for posting the update!
Cheers,
Don

Don, I baked with the Oregon sourdough today.  I love it, the flavor had a very subtle tang.  Though I got messed up in the timing....I was suppose to bake this on Friday night.  This is way, way longer than I normally go with fermenting.  I put the dough in the fridge on Friday night and baked at around 5pm today.  This pizza was around 2:15ish. I didn't have the oven rolling enough to reach the potential of this pizza, but it was still o.k.

Please..... :-D thanks though.  Deb, thanks.

Flavor wise, I loved this pizza,  appearance wise....not what I'm looking for.   Like I said, I dont typically ferment that long, and the fire wasn't raging. Those two things effected the final product for sure.


 We are going to get our wild culture going soon, both Goat Island and Lake Marion.  Interested?    Moms GI sourdough had some serious tang, very much like SF sourdough I've had.

After feeding the starter last night, I woke to a flat lifeless looking jar of glop.  I was desperate, so I added a cup of flour and water...and a pinch if brown sugar.  An hour later, my wife tells me I Need to look at my starter.  Needless to say, I had a Gene Wilder moment.....






It's alive!!!!!!

Stoney,
Thanks for posting!  I probably should have told you that this 'starter' has been feed 2:1 it's entire "life". 
I'm sorry for the mess.  I too have had to hose out the cooler/fermenter when the yeast goes wild!  You'll get to know her and you'll get to love her.... Afterall, they do say keep Portland weird.
Cheers,
Don
