Hello fellow baker!
Sourdough Bread Baking Experiments is a fun course for advanced bakers. In this course we will be playing around and experimenting with a very high hydration dough called Cristal Bread. It’s all the rage right now!
We will also boil bread, try out low inoculation rates, bake a motherdough only loaf, use double hydration and mix different flour together as we explore some heritage grains. 
There are nine formulas altogether, which include techniques for high hydration, double hydration, low inoculation, heritage grains, boiled bread, motherdough only loaf and more!
Also included is an experiment with extreme double hydration.  
This main purpose of this course is to have fun and open your mind to exploring and experimenting with sourdough baking.
Please be advised that this is an advanced class and it will not cover sourdough basics. Intermediate students will benefit from this course if they’ve taken some of the earlier sourdough baking courses. 
See some of the reviews from my other popular sourdough baking courses:

•great detail, I find Teresa’s explanation and demonstration incredibly helpful.
•Teresa is an excellent instructor; is informative and makes sourdough baking enjoyable.
•Videos are such a great help when learning how to mix your dough. If you want to learn the proper way to make sourdough, enroll in this class. It is fun to do and you get fabulous results!
•Everything is easy to understand, step by step and we can go back and review information. Both ways of learning, reading the material and then watching by video is provided (to be followed eventually by our own hands-on learning) It is at a nice comfortable pace, not rushed. I am very impressed and happy with this course.
•Clear instructions, easy to follow. Teresa is a great teacher.
•I haven’t seen anything this thorough. She covers a recipe from A to Z videos included. You have to take this course and her other courses. Your bread baking skills will no doubt be boosted with Teresa’s courses. Her videos are fantastic and honestly, you get more than what you paid.
•Very well done, I learn by watching then doing. Teresa is very good at show and tell…Thanx Teresa
•This course has been so helpful, as I think I would have struggled without it. The instructions and videos are very clear. I would definitely recommend it!
