How To Do A Float Test

Before you make your autolyse or shape your dough, we recommend you do a float test to make sure the sourdough is ready.


A simple test to perform so your baked goods don’t end up flat. 


Take a small portion of sourdough (20g or so) and place it in warm water (60-70 degrees) 


If it floats, it’s ready. 


That means the bacteria in the starter is active & producing enough gas and is ready to be used
