Do You Use the Float Test to Bake Sourdough?

I’ve said it before and I’ll likely say it again: I bake a lot of sourdough.

But it seems that even with all my practice and knowledge, I still find new things and new information that change my perspective on how I cook.

This week, I dug into a question that I’ve had for a while: does the float test actually work?

I don’t use the float test often with my baking, but I have done it whenever I stumbled across a recipe that recommended using it. So this week I did a little searching and found out whether the float test is a reliable method for making open-crumb sourdough and similar breads.

Feel free to stop by my bread blog to read about what I learned. And while you’re at it, maybe take a few moments to browse my other baking tips and bread recipes. I’d love to see if they helped you.
