Sourdough Adventures II

I’ve made a few more batches with my sourdough starter since my first successful loaf. However, these baguette-bâtard mutants are notably blogworthy.

I’m still trying to get a feel for how to make great sourdough. I still haven’t been able to get a really sour taste, and on my last dough, the starter ‘over ripened’ and degraded the gluten, causing a dough that fell apart instead of stretched. Luckily that dough was destined for pizza and I could roll it out and salvage it. My second sourdough loaf had perfect gluten development, but again, little sour flavor (recipe link from Sourdough Adventures I).
