NEW course Launch!

Join my new sourdough baking course here: Sourdough Bread Baking Experiments

Today is launch day for my new course, “Sourdough Bread Baking Experiments.” I had a lot of fun making this course but it took me a long time to get it finished. Thank you for being so patient!

In this course, I boiled bread, worked with low inoculation, double hydrations, motherdough, overnight ferments, super high hydration (Cristal Bread) and other fun experimental methods. I also played around with some heritage grains, Spelt and Teff. There is even a failed experiment with double hydration! READ MORE »

Dough Hydration, What Does That Mean?


Dough Hydration

What Does Hydration Mean – in Baking Terms? (This is an excerpt from my Sourdough Bread Baking 101 course)

Teresa L Greenway Northwest Sourdough – all rights reserved worldwide

Hydration, in bread baking terms, means how much water or liquid there is in a given amount of flour, or the ratio of water to flour weight. More water means a higher hydration or wetter dough. Less water means a lower hydration or drier, stiffer dough. Understanding hydration allows a baker to know approximately how wet or dry dough will be. An average lower hydration dough might be around 60% – 64% hydration (an average hydration used in large scale bakeries). Wet high hydration Ciabatta dough might be around 75 %- 85% hydration.
