Original of the video here
everybody it’s your homegirl joy herefeels weird saying that becausetechnically I just finished filming theprevious video but I want to make anintro to the sourdough starter because Idon’t have that anymore welcome back tomy channel I post whenever I do here isthe video that I was supposed to postfour months ago obviously this video isabout me making Joshua’s version of asourdough starter so following hisrecipe exact to cultivating my ownsourdough starter I hope you enjoy howawkward I am trying to follow thisrecipe but there you have itnow to get started with the sourdoughstarter I highly recommend going toJoshua Wiseman’s channel and watchinghis sourdough video so first you’regonna want a pretty large amazing jobnow this is the size of my mason jarit’s a decent size is this one hereI can’t tell make sure obviously that ithas a lid this type of lid I recommendand next you are going to want a foodscale this is going to really save yourlife when it comes to really followinghis recipe for the sourdough starter nowI have this one I think it was like 12bucks on Amazon they’re not expensiveand you’re gonna find that it is sohelpful with cooking in general in thefuture and you’re gonna be reallygrateful that you bought one because Iuse mine all the timesecond I’m what’s called MRI joshua usesdark rye flour this red mill pickaxhe uses the subretinal organicwhole-grain dark rye flour stone groundhere you go take a gander and one of themost important things to make sure allthe flour that you use is unbleached andit has the exact unbleached all-purposeflour that he had now I’m using a redmillOrganic flour all-purpose unbleached Iread that upside-down I just got myselfin that eyeball then you’re gonna wantto get yourself a small little spatulaso it can fit in the jar it’ll help alot with just keeping the sharprelatively neat and clean inside andfiltered water at 85 degrees so now thatwe got that out of the way that’s thisright now the process of cultivatingyour yeast will take about a week atleast that’s what is shown and Joshua’svideo so we’re gonna follow his firstday steps right nowalright so the first thing I’m gonna dois go ahead how much the jar by itselfweighs so it’s four hundred thirty fourgrams I’m gonna drop that down realquick just so I don’t forget and it’sgonna be really important that you dropthis down again I recommend watching hisvideo because he goes into detail andits really good hopefully I can recreatethis the first thing you want to do onday one is fill up your mason jar with100 grams of that stone ground where Iflour was a live flour so add in 100grams of the whole grain dark rye flourinto your mason jars after you have theflour added in slowly add in a hundredand 50 grams of your lukewarm water nowI use filtered water that I heated up to85 degrees now just make sure that youcompletely incorporate the flour andwater together make sure that there isno flour left on the bottom of the jarand then that you want to just looselycover the jar with the lid so make sureit’s not tight pressure will build upbecause of the expanding yeast in therethat’s starting to cold debate there’sgonna be a lot of air pressure in thereso loose now once you’re done with thatjust label your jar II write it on the top of the lid becausethere’s a little space for it and Iwrote down today’s date and what Idecided to name our sourdough starterthat we’re starting togetherAragorn so that is all for day one nowwe’ll just have to wait 24 hours andtomorrow we’ll see how the sourdough isdoing and if there is a little bit of arise in the fall or any sort of movementwelcome to number 2 my voice cracked alittle because I haven’t spoken today itis morning and I have recently woken upso what you’re going to do is leavebehind in the jar 70 grams of yourstarter okay so now you’re gonna mix 50grams of that dark rye flour with 50grams of your organic unbleachedall-purpose flour you’re gonna put thatin with your 70 grams of starter andyou’re going to mix in 115 grams of yourlukewarmfiltered water eighty-five degreesFahrenheit now go ahead and mix that alltogether and you are done with day twonow I’m curious to see what happens asthe Diego is five and if I see anyactivity more significant than like thecentimeter that it would before[Music]so on day three you’re gonna repeat thesame exact steps as you did on datenumber two it’s gonna be seventy gramsof the starter left in the jar then atthe 50:50 of the dry and all-purposeflour and then the 115 grams of theeighty-five degrees Fahrenheit lukewarmwater filtered all right so I’ve drawn aline and we’ll see what happens tomorrowas a side note it is much colder herethan when Joshua did a so the heatreally does help the apartment is prettycold all the time so so we are on dayfour of the starter now we’re gonna dothe same amount of flour to start aratio so we’ve 70 grams in the jar then50 50 on the right and all-purpose butyou’re going to take down 15 grams fromthe water again it’s still 85 degreesFahrenheit lukewarm water filtered at ahundred grams a hundred grams so that’sgonna be the only difference for thisday when I went to the jar there wassome activity not as much as yesterdaythough there’s some bubbles on the topwhich is a good time it means it’sactive but it’s not quite there yet andwe still have a few more days to go okayso there is a lot of activity this isDave I had to take the ring off of thethe jar because it was starting to reachthe very top and it’s been about an hoursince then and it’s already pushing thetop lid off okay so it’s at the veryvery top of the jar this is where it waswhen I said it yesterday it has morethan doubled its size just about tripleincrediblyoh yeah it’s yep it’s to the very top soI’m gonna let it do its thing and onceit’s it starts going down I’m gonna goahead and do day five feeding okay so Ijust checked it’s a notebook my notesand it’s the same exact thing as we didyesterday so 750 5100 go ahead and do itagain okay so I just took the lid offthis is how much was touching the topand it’s been a couple hours now but ithas gone down just about there this wasreally successful and I’m so excited tosee what happenstomorrow I’m kind of scared because Idon’t know I may need a bigger jar Idon’t know I think I’ll be fineover that so I marked where it was onceI finished feeding it today and it’salready doubled in size I’m a littleterrified but also really excited sowe’ll see what happens with it tonightor tomorrow okay so now we’re at day sixthis is where we start dropping is thisstarter amount even more so instead ofthe normal 70 grams you’re gonna beleaving 50 grams in your jar and thenadd the same 50/50 amount of the Rye andthe all-purpose organicunbleached with the hundred grams offilter 85 degree Fahrenheit water okayit is the next morning as you can seethere has been a double if in sizeincrease and a rise in a fall let’s seeif there’s some bubbles on the insidethere is still a lot of activity whichis really good okay day number seven wedid it we’ve made it to day number sevenand then now how the only differencethat we will be doing is reducing theamount of starter that we leave in thejar once again so this is gonna seemlike there is nothing left in your jarbecause that’s how it’s been feeling forme but it’s been working very wellyou’re gonna leave 25 grams of yourstarter in your jar after today this iswhat you will be doing every single dayif you leave your starter out of courseI would like to leave my starter outbecause I like to make bread a lot formy husband summon her pee one more time25 grams of her starter should be leftin your jar mix your 50 grams of thewhole whole right the dark rye flour andthen your 50 grams of your unbleachedall-purpose flour and then lastly 100grams of your filtered lukewarm 85degree Fahrenheit that was at Furmanheight whether Fahrenheit water okay nowwe will be able to feed this every 24hours or 12 hours 12 hours is best justto keep it very active and healthy andif you don’t want to feed it everysingle day you can feed it once a weekif you keep your your fridge in thestarter if you keep your starter in yourfridge all you have to do is take itlet me get to room temperature then youcan feed your starter and then waitabout an hour to when the things startto rise and get more active and then youcan put it in your fridge to let it sitfor the week until you need to feed itagain that was pretty successful and I’mso excited to make bread with this I’mnot the best at making break justbecause it’s so new to me I’ve beentrying to make it for a couple monthsnow though and I’m getting better andbetter at it more confident with breadmaking which confidence is key when itcomes to making bread but yeah this fullrecipe

gramsof beasts left there you go but let mego ahead and show you look atso that’s how much was left and this ishow much the Big East had risen and thenhere is the drop and still very bubblyand there
