whole wheat levain

Utica Bread Whole Wheat Levain is made from whole wheat flour and wheat flour. The use of a long autolyze and bulk fermentation help to develop the flavors of the wheat while keeping it soft and a proper volume. The addition of 30 % white flour helps add a level of sweetness to balance the tannins of the red wheat.

One interesting point of this dough is our use of the whole grain. Most commercially produced breads today use other additives to stabilize and ease the use of this sometimes difficult to work with whole grain.
