Dave Miller's formulas for einkorn, Renan & Sonora breads (Grain Gathering 2015)

Related posts:
After the Grain Gathering, Dave Miller very kindly sent me the formulas he used in class. Please remember that he dries his levain from one bake to the next (see Meet the Baker: Dave Miller).

Process for levain (for all three breads)

First feeding
  • Sieve out dried sourdough bits
  • Add water to soften, create a mush, let sit 1 hour
  • Add back sifted-out flour, should make stiff ball (DDT: 78°F)
  • Ferment for 10 to 12 hours
Second feeding
  • Ferment for 4 hours (DDT still 78°F)
Third feeding
  • Ferment for 3 hours (DDT still 78°F)

My heartfelt thanks to Jacqueline Colussi for her help with inputting the formulas into BreadStorm.
