Does anyone make Desem, and if so, any tips?

Thanks,

Another one of those things Ive never heard of.

My next house will have no kitchen - just vending machines and a large trash can.

Well, it is a whole wheat bread. That much I know. I've seen it in health food store bakery sections, but never bought any. Supposed to be exceptionally healthy.

Looks interesting, I love sourdough although I've never made it from scratch. This blog is pretty good:

LOL, that's actually where I was reading about it! I just wondered if anyone here had any experience making it...

i was wondering about sourdough wheat bread...especially since I bought all that wheat flour. i guess you'd have to make wheat starter too, right?

Yes, you should make a wheat starter. Mine was started with 100% stone-ground WW for the yeast naturally on the bran; subsequent feedings went to half rye (for oomph) and half WW, and later white WW from KAF, and finally just an organic unbleached AP once the starter had matured about a week. Smelled great!

I haven't baked with it yet but it's in the refrigerator. (Too many other projects like making kefir, stock, yogurt... you get the picture.)

I need to recreate my starter. Time to buy more pineapple juice.
sigh
