Sourdough Bread (San Francisco Style - No Yeast Added) Recipe

If you're not a sourdough baker, what follows may be tedious. I know the yeasts my starter ("Wild Thing") caught in Texas are not the ones native to the Bay Area, but this bread tastes just as good. I employed the dough hooks on my recently purchased garage sale old Sunbeam Mixmaster, as the knead time is 10 minutes. This recipe will make 2 medium loaves or boules, or one giant whatever. The dough after kneading should be moist, but not tacky. It doubled in 3 hours, but when I shaped it, it seemed rather flat. However, 1 1/2 hours later it had doubled, so I heated the oven to 450 F for the first 10 minutes to get a good rise, then cut back to 400 F. Note: I keep my starter the consistency of thick pancake batter or muffin batter, so if yours is thinner, you'll need more flour. Fantastic!
