    Is Acme Olive Bread sourdough?

    Is Levain a sourdough starter?

    A levain, also called a leaven or levain starter, is an off-shoot of your sourdough starter, and it’s a mixture of fresh flour, water, and some ripe starter. This mixture will be used entirely in a batch of dough and has the same fate as the bread dough you’re mixing: you will bake it in the oven.

    Why do people put bread in the fridge?

    Stale bread is bread that has changed texture, but is still edible, and which can be brought back to a soft fresh-like state. Moldy bread is bad bread. Putting bread in the refrigerator means that it will not go moldy as quickly!

    Should I refrigerate bread?

    *Never keep your bread in the fridge. The starch molecules in bread recrystallize very quickly at cool temperatures, and causes the bread to stale much faster when refrigerated. *Shop-bought loaves should be kept in an air-tight plastic bag at room temperature rather than in the fridge.

    Do you put oil in sourdough bread?

    Yes – adding olive oil to sourdough bread will result in a softer crust and crumb. The oil as a lipid coats the flour and inhibits the gluten network resulting in a softer, tighter crumb and softer crust. This can be a desirable outcome if you do not like tough, chewy sourdough crusts.
