I fed my sourdough starter yesterday. It was foaming nicely after 12 hours.

I proceeded to make the bread and it's now been another 12 hours and nothing is happening. I don't know what I did wrong. It's in a nice warm spot with a tea cloth on top.

Can anyone give me a site to look at to see what to do or talk me through this.

I loved making all kinds of yeasts breads with wheat in the past now with sourdough and brown rice I am a complete novice.

Thank you.

I have nothing hopeful or helpful to add. I gave up on getting sourdough to work. Maybe you don't have enough protein in your flour mix?

Well.... It turned out pretty lousy, but eatable.

The top was hard and when I cut it, it crumbled to pieces. The center was nice and moist, so maybe turn down the heat a bit and try again :rolleyes:

I do have to say it did taste quite like the brown rice loaf from Little Streams Bakery(if anyone has tried that one.)

I think I'm gonna try the quinoa loaf next week.

Thanks

I keep liquid acidophilus on hand. When I feed my pet or portion out for a project, I add a tiny bit of the acidophilus. I don't measure but would say it is about a Tablespoon for my pet and a teaspoon for a project.

Don't give up. I started my starter the middle of October and I have made the most fantastic breads, cupcakes and biscuits. The pancakes stunk though, so I'm still working on them.

However, I'm here to find out about sourdough and celiac disease because I'm pretty sure I have it because I have vitamin deficiencies and autoimmune thyroid. So how long is the sourdough supposed to ferment? Are there any specific guidelines for celiac disease or is just any sourdough recipe okay?

Hi Susie.

I am new to gluten intolerance. I am not even sure I have it but feel better gluten free.

You definitely have to have a non gluten starter to have it be gluten free. You can't use any starter.

I got my starter from G.E.M cultures and is a brown rice sourdough. I plan on using quinoa or millet next.

BTW I would love any of your famous sourdough recipies.

The only thing is... I can't have any dairy, chocolate, or sugar as well.

Thanks for posting.

Not necessarily, there was an article not too long ago about a study done with true, old-fashioned sourdough and celiacs/gluten sensitive. According to the article the enzymes in the starter would predigest the gluten (sounds gross) making it tolerable. I believe they did villi testing too in addition to just "feel good" results.

By true old fashioned starter I mean the kind that you sit on your counter for days with water, flour and enzyme. NOT the prepackaged store bought kind that is basically a flavor packet and you use with yeast.

Oh no....I didn't realize the starter could not be regular sourdough.

I read that celiacs could tolerate sourdough if it was fermented for 24 hrs and was only 30% of the dough.

I had planned to change to whole grain spelt. I believe I read that our current supplies of wheat are GMO wheat and that it has changed the gluten proteins. And that the heirloom varieties would be better tolerated. I"m no expert, but I'm hoping. I've never even heard of rice sourdough.

My cupcakes are chocolate and have sugar. Sorry. Breads and biscuits are just normal recipes, but they turned out better than I expected sourdough to turn out. They weren't sour at all.

How do you know you can't have sugar? I've heard about dairy and chocolate but never heard that anyone was sensitive to sugar unless it was fruit sugar.

    • Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensils by putting in your oven self clean cycle, 500F will destroy the protein. I always tell people easy ways to get started on new cookware, nordicware microwave cook ware, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, grilling plates (do not forgot the splatter cover), This way you can have a cheap and easy meals, a new crockpot and use crockpot liners is great for soups, I suggested a combo rice cooker/crockpot/steamer as a great investment. OH if you want a nice clean safe prep area/counter/eating place mat, look up freezer paper/butcher paper. I did a post on where to get it in bulk awhile back. But laying it out is perfects, and makes clean up a breeze. Foil sheets in baking dishes works great for a extra precaution but if you have any with baked on stuff or scratched look at getting new ones. PS took me over  months to start feeling much better. Sometimes the improvement is minor and you have to think back to the worst you had. It does improve but normally big changes are after a year.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!  
    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!
