Have been making this recipe for quite a while now. Wanted to try SD because my mom made SD pancakes for my dad every morning (no, not fond of pancakes for that reason). It works great for me. I made my starter with a bit of yogurt and yeast and it is very mild in flavor. I'm told its more of a European flavor, rather than the american San Francisco style. I've been baking some kind of bread for many years, up to 6 at a time when kids were home. Learned a lot. Someone asked why add yeast, its because most sourdough only is very slow and the yeast speeds it up. Using less yeast and giving it more time will develop more flavor in your bread. The artisan no-knead bread I make takes 1/2 tsp of yeast and raises for at least 6 hours. Bread dough is also affected by weather, and has to be adjusted constantly. Machines are a great time saver, but if you want the best bread, make it by hand. Its good for the soul! If you want a crispier crust, make sure to keep an oven-proof bowl of water in your oven while baking.
