Q1:    Can I use different timings to fit in with my lifestyle?

A:  Yes.  I will share with you ways in which you can make the process fit in with your timescale.   Although making a loaf of sourdough bread in 1 day is a very useful skill, there are other time scales.

Q2:  What maximum temperature should my oven heat to?

A:  All domestic ovens heat up to 220°C.  Many ovens reach higher temperatures.   It’s always useful to check the temperature of your oven with an oven thermometer.


A:   Yes.   The SPECIAL OFFER BUNDLE Bundle’ comprises ‘Let’s Start! Mastering Sourdough Starters on Zoom’ and ‘Hands in Sourdough on Zoom’.  A saving of £15.   For more info, click  SPECIAL OFFER BUNDLE
