BREAD AND SOURDOUGHS
HOME->SD

This page has been started in order to provide a platform for easy access to my natural sourdough hobby.

My quest is to make loaves equivalent* to the Hofpfisterei's bakery in Munich with 2000 g (4.4 lb.), incredible taste, medium fine crumb structure, good rise, partially full grain, organic, medium to full rye content and natural starter with the means available in my home as a hobby baker in Colorado/US.

As you can see on the above picture, I am coming a little closer (if my memory servers well). The bread above is an organic 1500 g (3 lb) 60/40 rye mix sunflower seed bread with full grain rye flour, 67 % hydration, starter grown with Detmold 3-Stage process, 10 minutes dough mixing time with Magic Mill mixer, 2 & 1.5 hour fermentation time, baked in my electric kitchen oven on baking stone (1" clay tiles) for 45 minutes starting with 550 F, after 9 minutes 425 F, bowl with boiling water in the oven and 2 x spritzed with water spray bottle in the beginning.

In the section below you find links for components and detours on this journey.

*) making something like those bread masterpieces is probably an unfullfillable dream and the bakers at the Hofpfisterei would probably be cracking up reading this - but hey, I am having fun!

Below is a collection of links to web pages showing a variety of breads. You will see many breads with full grain flour (dark brown) as well as breads with whole kernels. Most breads have a higher rye (GE: Roggen) content.
