For the country bread, first prepare the sourdough. For the sourdough, mix 50 g water, 10 g wheat starter sourdough and 100 g wheat flour and let stand covered for about 10 hours at about 25 °C.

For the bread dough, mix the sourdough with wheat flour, wheat bread flour and 500 g water and let it rest covered for 60 minutes. Knead for 3-5 minutes to form an elastic dough.
