A reader sent me a link to this video where the lady shows making a “dry” starter. It isn’t totally dry like powder but it definitely looks interesting. I’m going to try it.
I find it interesting that she’s using einkorn, which I also like but it isn’t readily available locally, or at least not that I’ve found, and shipping makes it cost prohibitive.
Of course, the starter and the bread can be made using any type strong protein flour.
Another thing – the sourdough bread can be made using any flour. It doesn’t have to be the same flour used in the starter. My starter is Wheat Montana all purpose flour but my bread is usually made using Wheat Montana Prairie Gold flour.
