Biga and poolish are so easy i can do it. The poolish takes as much work as any overnight dough in Flour Water Salt Yeast.I've messed around with starts before but always seems to end up as being too much trouble and unsustainable. It's something for the professional kitchen as it requires space and consistent tending.
Poolish usea dry yeast a levain with wild yeast is next. His recipe uses about 3kg of whole wheat flour for the starter. I'm predicting I'll be like you: do it once as a project and then..... maybe nothingDid you use dry yeast or go the hard core route of letting wild yeast start it? I've only ever done it with wild yeast and get bored/forgetful about maintaining the starter. I suppose if I were to just start new with commercial yeast whenever I felt like it that would be easier, and only takes a day in advance planning vs. what could be weeks, and still get some of the nuance a prefermentation gives.
I didn't know they were related to penzeys. Big fan of penzeys although there isn't a physical location near me and I don't usually want large quantities of spices (I am almost out of their double strength vanilla and my Fox Point blend is getting old though...)You better visit the Spice House to restock those. Same family as Penzeys but I like their (the Spice House) blends better.

The have very similar blends as Penzeys. Fox Point is basically the same as Lake Dr and their steak seasonIngs (good for roasts) and very similar as well.I didn't know they were related to penzeys.

Usually the bulk bins at whole foods are what I end up with... Just buying as needed. But maybe this project will kick start doing a better job of throwing out old spices, restocking, and buying smaller quantities.
