Blistered Crust Sourdough – New Video Series



I’ve promised to teach you how I make the blistery crust sourdough bread. It’s taking me a while because I am learning to use a new video editing software. Hopefully, I will improve as I roll out the next few videos, but here is the first one in the series:

Blistered Crust Sourdough Mixing – Part 1



The formula is at the end of the video, but here it is again if you want to copy, paste and print from your document editor:

Potato Water Sourdough:

  1. 500 grams of chopped up potatoes boiled in approximately
  2. 1 kilogram of water (you will need 700 grams total for the dough)


  1. 600 grams of Potato water
  2. 300 grams active starter @ 100 % hydration
  3. 1100 grams of flour

Autolyse for two hours and then add:

  1. 100 grams of potato water
  2. 25 grams of salt

For the rest, follow the directions on the video series.

Please feel free to leave feedback and share the link to the youtube video on your facebook page: http://youtu.be/dbdIxrneL6E
