20 Tips to Make Sourdough Bread Less Dense and more Airy!
Sourdough bakers often complain about their bread having too dense a texture.
Tip #1: Increase the Hydration Level of your Dough for a Softer Textured Sourdough
The amount of water you add to the dough affects how open the crumb is in the final result
Tip #2: Switch up the Type of Flour you use to give Sourdough a Softer Texture
The type of flour used in your mixture will make a massive difference to the end result of your bread
Tip #3: Use Sifted Flour to Make Sourdough Less Dense
If you still choose to use whole wheat flour, try sifting some or all of the flour to get rid of part of the bran.
Tip #4: Soak Flour Beforehand for a Lighter Sourdough Loaf
Soaking whole grain flour overnight before adding it to the final dough mixture will allow the bran in the wheat to soften and become more flexible.
Tip #5: Bake Sourdough Bread in a Dutch Oven for Better Results
Steam retention during baking is extremely important when it comes to getting a good rise in sourdough bread.
