  3. @Toucan38 If its sourdough you want, forget the yeast and sugar, and use
    wholemeal (wholegrain in the US) bread flour, or rye flour, and leave in a
    warm place (about 30 degrees C). After a day add more flour and water and
    stir it in (never mind the liquid on the top – just stir it in). Repeat
    after another day. With good strong organic flour it should start bubbling,
    with a beery smell, and taste a bit acidic. There you have your starter! I
    know it works, because thats how I make my sourdough

  8. @mrwht The sourdough proofiing is roughly about 4 to 8 hrs. As long as the
    dough doesnt resist u. U proof, then u cut out the maybe be about 2 cups of
    starter to reserve in the fridge before adding salt & other fruits or
    veggies. So workout ur ingredients accordingly. U hv a happy starter that u
    don need to keep feeding every 8 hrs unless u are making pancakes everyday
    like I do!!

  9. We really supposed 2 believe everyone in the history of this world went &
    bought yeast? After ruling out regular grocery crap bread w/more than 2-3
    ingredients, people told they’re “gluten-intolerant/sensitive” might find
    its actually the commercial yeast (should be obvious by now that commercial
    (high profit/low quality) everything, especially food, is what’s making
    Americans a diseased people. Just make real bread with your own starter and
    you might actually be able to eat bread again!

  11. This is just regular bread. Sourdough uses a sourdough starter not instant
    yeast. Sourdough starters is 50:50 flour:water(bottled) which you refresh
    every day by throwing half away and topping up with more flour/water. After
    about seven-ten days it will be bubbly and smell like beer. This is a
    sourdough starter, go read up on sourdough recipes from here.

  15. You’d need to order special SF yeast to make real SF sourdough, and it’d
    gradually be taken over by yeast from your environment. However, I had
    great success making a sourdough by following the directions DrPonzius
    posted in a video called “Make a Basic Loaf of Sourdough Bread – Recipe” It
    took me a couple tries, but after my fourth loaf I had bread to die for.
    Took some in to work and people ate it and let doughnuts go stale!

  16. The recipe calls for 1 tbsp of yeast in the starter and the bitch that’s
    talking says 2 tbsp. Make up your fucking mind!

  17. it’s confusing: the recipe asks 1/4 oz (which is 2.5 tsp) plus 1 tbs. When
    making the starter she puts 2 Tbs of yeast ???, then in final dough she
    puts all the package. The question where she gets 2 Tbs plus 1 Tbs if the
    yeast if altogether from the recipe she has 1 Tbs and 2.5 tsp. ?????
    Anyways too much yeast!!!!!!! Your stomach will be risen 10X 😀

  18. Sugar in tangy SF sourdough bread??? I think not.

  19. that woman is cute!

  20. @timxthomson With flour, water and salt, no added yeast, you’ll only get
    salty little crackers.

  22. This is the most retarded thing I have ever seen, YOU HAVE TO HAVE A TYPE

    January 15, 2014 at 7:56 pm

  23. Wait a minute!!! Sourdough without stater? How will this became sour? Ohh
    Boy this is just like when you see a sign that says:”Italian Restaurant”
    then you walk inside and see Chines and Mexican inside the kitchen.
    Actually this is worst,cause is possible to learn how to make Italian food
    without being Italian. But how’s the hell you gonna make sourdough with dry
    instant yeast?

  24. As mentioned, this cannot be SF sourdough bread. SF sourdough tastes
    diffrent (and better!) then all other sourdough because of two reasons: a.)
    it is all made using a starter that dates back a long, long time. I don’t
    know exactly, haven’t looked at a package in a while (stuck in TX) b.)
    there is a specific kind of yeast that only lives in SF. Therefore to MAKE
    SF sourdough you must be IN SF. So yeah, Howcast, this is misleading and
    should be re-named.
