Extreme Fermentation Sourdough Bread

Welcome to my course on baking extreme fermented breads. In this course you will learn the method of extreme fermentation of dough, to help modify the gluten of the dough and make it more digestible. You will also learn how to make the bread taste either more sour or mild, depending upon how you handle the dough. And last you will learn to make a large batch of dough and then bake it off over several days, so the dough is handy with a few hours notice to make bread.

New method for extreme fermentation using “hands off” and extended ferments.

This course was inspired by Yohan Ferrant’s “Do Nothing” bread which I observed him making at the “Quest for Sourdough” workshop in Belgium at Puratos. 

My objects for this course are:

  1. To modify the gluten of bread, making it not only more digestible, but resulting in terrific flavor. 
  2. Show the student how to vary the “sour” or mildness in their long ferments. 
  3. Develop a method to ferment large batches of dough and be able bake up bread with only a few hours notice after the dough has fermented over the course of several hours or days.
  4. To offer an option for those who wish to go “Gluten Free” but still want to eat real bread. This is not free from gluten but the gluten is modified to the point where many with digestive issues can eat real bread again. 

With this course, I believe I have achieved all of my objectives. You will learn not only how to do an extreme ferment of the dough, but how to make it either “sour” or mild and how to have dough handy to bake with only a few hour notice.

Although this course is aimed at the more advanced sourdough baker, it is easy enough to follow if you’ve taken some of the beginning and intermediate courses. Sourdough baking basics are not covered in this course. 

This course will make it easy for the working person to have world class bread throughout the week with very little work and short notice. It will also be helpful for those who wish to modify gluten to make it more digestible. 

Welcome to “Extreme Fermentation Sourdough Bread” and enjoy the experimentation!
