I have been experimenting with the Austrian Sourdough Starter for about a month now. It has turned out to be a starter to rival Northwest Starter. Austrian Starter has an eight hour proof so you are able to push the sour envelope even more. It has turned out to be vigorous, and very tasty. I am really impressed. It will be setting out on my counter a lot in the Winter months ahead of us. I am printing up envelopes and you can expect to see it offered pretty soon in my website store at: http://www.northwestsourdough.com/store.html or on the starter page at: http://www.northwestsourdough.com/starter.html.
Here are some pictures of Austrian Farm Sourdough Bread I baked up two days ago:
Here is a closeup of the crumb:
This bread had a terrific crumb and the crust was wonderfully crusty with such a beautiful color. It had a nicely sour tangy flavor. I have gotten such nice looking bread each time I have baked with this starter. Happy Sourdough Baking!
