Ok, folks. apply your bits to the screen and cross all your private parts that my Mk V sourdough starter works. So far we've had Mk I (Hermann), which was perfect, Mks II and III (Helga and Henry) just didn't work (used the wrong flour and yoghurt in the starter, I reckon). Mk IV (named Heinrich), we ate last night and he was ok but hadn't quite risen enough.
I have high hopes for Mk V, however (daughter of Heinrich), which you get to name. Vote now for one of the following:
5. Heidi (the sausage)
Voting closes at 2.00, so do it now, or forever hold your piece.
