Drying sourdough starter - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Drying sourdough starter

    Does anyone have any tips on drying sourdough starter for storage? I have read that if I put some starter in a cottage cheese container and let it sit for 24 hours it will dry and then all I will have to do is squeeze the sides of the container and the dried starter will crumble. Should the lid be put on the container durring the drying process or leave it off? Thanks.

    Hi Debbie,

    Thanks for asking this question! I have thought it myself over time, but never got around to asking those with experience to weigh in on the subject.

    I'll be interested in the responses from those who have dried the stuff..

    Can you just pour some starter out on a cookie sheet? or parchment? set on the counter and wait for it to go solid?

    Seams like in a sealed container the moisture would not leave the mixture very fast, and might mold before it dried...

      What I learned was to spread some really active starter onto a length of wax paper.
      Stick it somewhere it won't be disturbed and let it dry. It'll curl up real nice when thoroughly dry. Stick 'em in a blender to reduce to a powder. Seal it up in an airtight container and keep it in the freezer.
