The preparation for any sourdough is in the starter. The process for the wild yeast to ferment the flour initially takes about seven days of “feeding”, after which you can begin to make your loaf. Experts will leave starters of all different flours in the refrigerator for months on end, feeding them every now and then, to re-activate the yeast. I am a sourdough novice, but this standard recipe is easy, suitable for all first-time sourdough makers, and makes a great loaf.
