Sometimes #sourdough sure feels like magic doesn’t it?
Here’s Lucille looking very strong. I think she’s liking the change in weather.
As seasons change, your sourdough will change too.
If it’s cooler in your kitchen, it will raise more slowly.
You can do a few things to speed it up if it’s too slow.
1. Use warmer water when feeding
2. Feed at a lower ratio (1:1.5:1.5 as an example)
Or 3. use a bit more water when feeding
Your dough will also proof more slowly when it cools down out.
Likewise, you can speed it up with warmer water or using more sourdough starter in your recipe.
Or, you can just follow your sourdough’s lead and slow yourself down as well.
