Another day another bread.
Supposed to be country French, not sure if it really is but I enjoy baking so...

+Daniel Strachan I used a sponge made with commercial yeast and unbleached flour, and the dough from commercial yeast and whole wheat.

Working on my first #sourdough.

I cheated by using 1/4 tsp of yeast instead of a starter. Seven more hours before I punch it down and do the second proof.

Ten percent oat for no good reason.

I don't know why people don't put clocks outside their house.

And then for no good reason there was walnuts and white chocolate in the buttermilk, brown sugar, and oat waffles.

I'm a little worried about my starter, it has a slight alcohol aroma.

I'm using organic spelt, started with, sorry I'm American, 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup filtered water.
Next night I scored half out and added 1/2 cup spent and 1/4 cup water.
Third night it was looking foamy, I removed half and added 1/4 cup spent and 2 tablespoons water, also filtered.
Tonight I also added 1/4 cup spent and 2 tablespoons filtered water.

+Franklyn Pearson  Sourdough culture has both yeast and bacteria in it.  My understanding is that the bacteria help break down the starches into sugars.  The yeasts feed on the sugars and produce alcohol.  The bacteria feed on the alcohol and produce vinegar.  It is the vinegar which gives the sour taste.  Many people start with a whole grain which has been stone ground as that will probably have more of the natural yeasts on it to start with.  I agree with +Daniel Strachan on the food choice. Once it is bubbling happily you can change to a simple white flour, which means you are not introducing more and different organisms with each feed.  However if you want to bake a legal true wholemeal then your starter should in theory be wholemeal too.

After joining and reading through all the posts I decided to give sourdough a try. I've been making different sweet rolls, dinner rolls, and bread for about a month.

I didn't have a starter, I'm working on that right now, so I cheated with 1/4 tsp of yeast. I think out turned out pretty good for a first try, although the bottom is slightly charred. It's crunchy, and chewy with 10% oat.

Right on, looks like a happy heathly fine tasting loaf.
It's good to hear that you have an up and coming sourdough culture, one thing to remember is that the hybrid leavoning strategy works very well. Get your culture up and rocking but also slip a tiny bit of tame yeast into the final dough, this will give you the best of both worlds. In any case take notes, keep track of what you do, temperatures as well.
There is always the chance that you will come up with loaf of all loaves and you will want to know how to replicate the beauty for next time.

Toying with the idea of a #bagged #golfcart.
Any good golf cart communities on G+?

Called +Comcast  #customerservice  to ask about IPV6 settings and the rep doesn't even know what IPV6 is. #WTF

Might be the best Subaru dealer in the area but I wouldn't know. Staffed by a bunch of 20 somethings with the apparent of attitude of "can't be bothered", until you're leaving. Two stars is being generous. Worst part is I was there to buy an Infiniti. Pro Tip: Lexus is across the street and they have fresh fruit.

Just passed by and stopped because it's the first real car wash I've seen since I moved to Florida 4 months ago. _The last time my car was washed was 3 when I washed it, so needless to say it was filthy._ Even though i got the cheap wash and they even took it through again because *they* weren't satisfied with the wash. Inside mirrors, sunroof, windows, even the trunk, all cleaned. I'll gladly stop by when I'm in the area for wash.

If you're not in a rush this is the place for you. The slow, casual, laid back attitude will surely have you going to the advantage auto parts parts a block away.

If you're looking to buy a gift and need help don't waste your time here. Unless you have time to wait while the employees finish personal discussions with people who appear to be the "regulars". AL&M has better service.
