Two new loaves of Sourdough!

As promised, here are the pictures. Both of them were made in loaf pans.

The flavor on the one I cut open is definitely more sour, but also somehow more subtle. And the texture isn’t quite as heavy as the last few times I made sourdough.

I used a recipe from the King Arthur Whole Wheat cookbook for these, and was quite happy with it.

Third Loaf

This one was ‘white whole wheat’ flour. It didn’t rise much at all.
This is interesting and surprising because the sponge for this one rose fairly fast, and quite well. The sponges for the all purpose and bread flour loaves barely rose.

Finished this one in the oven as the grill ran out of steam and it was too late to start coals again.

I’m not quite sure I understand the starter though, the whole loving the wheat in the sponge hating it in the dough is confusing to me. Live and learn I guess.
