Mel Watt's mybest Summary

Sourdough baking can require a lot of information and techniques to be able to bake your very first sourdough bread. While these are the top 10 products I recommend as your basic products, there are plenty more products that I have not listed here, which are not necessary tools for beginners but are tools that you can use to advance or invest in.

Sourdough baking requires a lot of patience, time and effort. There will be plenty of failed attempts with a lot of fun experimentations.
