I think there may be too much yeast. Theoretically the sour dough starter should be the only Rising required. It rose too high and then collpsed but the flavor was good. I am going to try it without the yeast in the 2nd part of recipe.

I thought this was worth a shot, since I really love sourdough bread. It's easy and quick enough, it just didn't taste sourdoughy at all...

This bread smelled wonderful and looked beautiful but tasted bland. It doesn't have a sourdough taste.

I like this recipe, but it didn't taste like sourdough, it was more like regular white bread.

I left the "starter" for 18 hours.....and made as directed by hand, no bread machine. It was a good bread, just tasted nothing like sourdough.
