I keep reading all these posts on sourdough bread and I'm fascinated. The wife has tried several times to get a starter going with no luck except the friendship bread thing, and it is really prolific. I'd be glad to give anyone a starter from it along with a loaf if they were close enough don't think you could mail it succesfully. Could this starter be used to make bread or to start a bread starter? Everyone keeps refering to the "Bassman". How do I get a recipe for his starter. Being a newbie, I haven't figured out how to contact him yet.
