Alchemy Sourdough | Bread Baking for Beginners

Here is a step-by-step video following the Alchemy Sourdough Recipe from Bread Baking for Beginners by Bonnie Ohara! As the final and most advanced recipe in this book, it is definitely the loaf that requires the most attention. It is delicious & well worth the wait…if you can get past the prep work and time management needed to make this bread!
I’ve provided my “bread schedule” for this recipe (see below). It helps me to map out my days & times when I plan on baking this bread. Obviously, you don’t have to follow these times exactly, modify and adjust as needed. I just hope this gives a good breakdown of the time it takes and the scope of work!
