Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

I will be adding my starter recipe to the Thermomix community. 

This recipe uses natural wild yeast as it's proving agent and the long rise partially digests the gluten as a ferment. 

If you are in Sydney I'm happy to share my starter culture. 

You can reduce the salt significantly if you aren't using maldon sea salt flakes, I would use a maximum of 1tbsp of granular salt or any salt other than maldon
