    I don’t have spelt flour… can I substitute it?

    • You can use any whole grain or even bread flour if you want a whiter bread 🙂

    Can I use unbleached all purpose flour in place of the bread flour

    • Yes, but you may need to lower the hydration. You need the consistency that I have in the video 🙂

    I made the oat meal loaf the other day the only thing I did different ( i took the order from your experimental results) was I put the water in the bowl first then the starter then the cooked oats then the rest of the flour came out nice I will make this one again often I think.

    Can this be made with the kitchenaid stand mixer

    • Absolutely. Mix it until it just comes together and let it rest for an hour, or mix it until it’s cohesive and then put it straight in the bulking container 🙂

    Would steel-cut oats work in this recipe?

    • If you can make oatmeal with them, I don’t see why not. We don’t have steel cut oats here, so I don’t have any experience with them 🙂

    Hi! I just made this but used whole wheat because I didn’t have spelt. I was wondering why there are no stretch and folds. I couldn’t resist when I saw the dough after an hour and did three sets spaced 30 min apart before shaping. All came out well in the end. Wonder how it would’ve been different had I not done that.

    • While it’s a part of most sourdough recipes, stretch and folds are rarely needed. The long fermentation will develop the gluten all on its own. Unless you are doing super high hydration, try it out next time 🙂

    This recipe made an incredible loaf of soft, delicious whole grain bread! I substituted 200 g of whole wheat flour for the same amount of the bread flour and used the extra 75 grams of water mentioned in the recipe. This one is definitely going in the regular sourdough baking rotation.

    • Awesome. I am delighted it’s working so great for you 😁
