Does anyone live in New York? I would like to make a sour dough starter for my bread's and pizza I want to mother a sponge using new york water, All I need is 2 gallons, That's should should be enough to started and have the nyc taste for a few years to come. And I don't mean bottle water I mean tap water.

Thanks Crazy Derek.

The flavor in sourdough doesn't come from the water. It's the natural yeast and bacteria in the air. Using the NY water to make and replenish the sour dough would probably be in such low percentages as to make no flavor impact at all.

I guess I would use Michigan water and go from there.



By the wat From "ALL the cooking shows" they say use ncy tap water for breads, pizza when you can.

I made my starter from this recipe on Breadtopia.com (http://www.breadtopia.com/make-your-own-sourdough-starter/). It came out very good using only airborne yeast beasties in Mentor Ohio. I don't think there is any airborne yeast in Michigan, due to the bad state of the economy. (just kidding)

Oh! You mean flatulence. I'm not up on the medical abbreviations of bodily functions. BTW, TMI!
