My quinoa sourdough adventure begins! Itís the first day of Winter here, so I might end up needing a proofer, but Iím going to give it a go first :).

I only began on Saturday (itís Tuesday morning now), but I suspect that the cool Winter temperature (itís currently 14įC in my kitchen) will be slowing things down. Still, when I stirred it this morning, it sounded bubbly (like stirring pancake batter that has baking soda bubbles in it).

I discovered that the drawer under my induction cooktop is the perfect temperature while I have veggie stock simmering on top so I have lots more lovely bubbles tonight #128522;

It's looking great, especially since you're not even a week in!

Itís my first baking day! I have noticed less bubbles since I used up my shop bought quinoa flour and started trying to make my own. I still donít have a grain mill, so I have been making do with my Thermomix and a fine sieve, but I can feel that itís still not as fine. My mother still tastes nice and sour, though, so Iím giving it a go!

First baking day! The loaves didnít rise as much as I was hoping, so I baked one and fried the other in a pan hoping for something a bit like naan to go with our curry for dinner. Itís very sour, but not unpleasant. I hope next week will be even better.

Frying it like naan is a great idea! Your loaf looks like it has some good bubbles happening--especially for the first week. Hopefully you can get the flour sorted out and find something that works well for your mother. Thank you for sharing your progress and pictures!

The texture is good but the taste is still very sour. Poor hubby couldnít hack it even with jam or honey. Will it get less sour over time? Is it excessively sour because of the low temperature in our house?

It looks like your loaves rose a little higher this week, is that right? With the Batter Breads and other breads in the Beginner Breads Section that use a lot of mother in relation to other ingredients, the flavor will always be sour. Once you move on to the Advanced Breads Section, there are recipes for breads with a less dominant sour flavor. The excessive sour flavor of your breads could be attributed to cooler temperatures, especially since it's winter where you are. In another thread, someone mentions using a plant heating mat to keep their mother warm in lieu of a proofer. Here's a link to that thread: http://wildbread.net/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=85
