To end the day was Sourdough 101: Basic Yeast Farming with Owen Petersen of Prairie Mill Bread Co. The class was probably one of the funniest I’d had all day, a great way to end the conference! We learned about starters – Owen had named his Julie – how to take care of it, feed it, keep it alive and use it. Everyone got a little baggie full of Julie to take home with them so we could make more sourdough, as well as Owen‘s blessing to rename her as she grows, matures and morphs into a different beast under our individual care.
