Learn to bake sourdough bread - the best bread in the world!

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.
