The yeast in my sourdough starter is weak. Instead of the customary two to three hours that commercial yeast needs to rise in order to double in size, my yeast needs about 12 hours. I don't know if I will be able to sell any sourdough loaves to my coworkers, since I like to bake the bread in the morning before I leave to work. The second rise doesn't take as long; but it takes long enough I don't want to wake up that early.

This is probably easier than most of my bread recipes. These are actually accurate measurements. Of course, they are all in grams. I have started to make less stiff doughs, and that requires me to do more measurement than mixing by feel. I also get to exercise my seventh grade math. I have been doing long division and multiplication in the kitchen with pen and paper.
