Sourdough Bread with a Prebiotic Soaker
Today's bake: Sourdough Bread with a Prebiotic Soaker
Source: CalBeachBaker/Michael Kalanty
Note: Prebiotic soaker, Med sourness -29 % prefermented flour
I though that I would post this 1st attempt of my regular sandwich sourdough bread with the newly added prebiotic soaker. I've taken the idea and the ratios from Michael Kalanty's online sourdough pizza with prebiotic soaker recipe and adapted it to this bread recipe.
The taste of this bread was surprisingly improved by the addition of the soaker. The Heirloom Red Fife Wheat really does have a more complex flavor profile than regular hard red wheat. The crust has a nice crisp resinous feel with a note of roasted coffee and tastes like it has a dusting of cinnamon. The crumb has a somewhat sour-vinegar mouthfeel that I enjoy.
