First sourdough attempt q-view

  1. Started some sourdough starter on monday and made some of Goat's biscuits tonite. His look much better than mine but boy were they tasty. I think I will eventually get the hang of it. I have a batch of starter in the fridge so I can make sourdough whenever I need it. [​IMG]

    how was the sourness?

    i haven't been able to find locally, or re-produce a San Fran sour dough taste
     
  3. Smelled and tasted like the best sourdough I have ever had...the longer you keep it out of the fridge...the better the sourdough flavor, so I am told.

    Also I am told that if you add yeast to speed the process you get less flavor. I have no idea if this is true, just what I have read. Goat swears buy the starter recipe of a chuckwagon cook and I am sure it has awesome flavor.

    New trick smokin,

    I double the recipe and place it in a gallon zip lock bag and into the refrigerator. Each morning I just pull off the amount of dough that I need and cut out my biscuits. I place the leftover dough back in the zip lock bag and back into the refrigerator. I let my biscuits warm up and rise for about 45 minutes and pop them in the oven. I have biscuit dough all week.

    No, I use a little more than that, salt, baking powder, baking soda, lard, sugar,& flour.
