Tips from Avi
The most important part is getting a strong sourdough starter, after that you can do anything (I use a mix of bread, whole wheat and rye flour)
It's generally good to start with hybrid loaves (i.e. a mix of your starter and dry yeast), but once confident, the bread really gets its best taste and tangy flavor when you omit dry yeast and rely purely on your sourdough starter
Once your stater is active, I usually take it out two days before mixing the dough, and feed it every 12 hours. Once you've mixed the dough, you can re-feed the starter and pop it in the fridge... in the fridge it can last several week/until your next bake
And you can make more than just bread! Sourdough pizza sounds amazing, and you can also use the discarded starter to make pancakes, etc. (I did scallion pancakes a few months ago and they were quite tasty)
The only issue now is finding bread flour, all the quarantine hipsters stole my idea and buying up the stock!!!!
