Spelt Sourdough

This recipe is another of my favourites.  I have mixed up the flours - both white flour and spelt flour,  wholemeal mix.  I have gone 20% stoneground flour/80% white bakers flour with this recipe. The recipe was made available by Firehouse Bakery in Ireland.   Some sourdough recipes include honey (apparently honey promotes more moisture, sweeter bread, and browner crust).  Its fun to experiment.
