I have had a Brod & Taylor proofing box in my closet for a long time. If I were to list it on ebay it would be “Like New”. For even longer than the proofing box has been in my closet there has been no starter in my fridge. I recently decided to correct these condition. It took about 8 days for my starter to get up and running. I’ve used it twice and the results have been pretty good, given how long it’s been since I’ve baked sourdough. For the time being I’m sticking with the basics, flour+water+salt. Once I figure out the rhythm of the box I’ll get a bit braver. My first two bakes are about 75% hydration.
