Sourdough

Bread production relied on using sourdough as a leaven in every culture for the most of human history. Sourdough is a fermented mixture of flour and water. In this process the naturally occurring yeasts produce carbon dioxide which rises the bread and the fermentation develops the distinctive taste and texture of sourdough bread

At Bacus, it takes over two days to produce sourdoughs from start to finish, the final proving taking as much as 18 hours

Yeast

In the 19th century bakers obtained yeast from brewers (barm) to replace the sourdough fermentation. This produced a sweeter less sour bread with a shorter proving time. Refinements in microbiology led to the production of modern baker’s yeasts in the late 19th century. Bácús use baker’s yeast in conjunction with preferment starters (poolish for baguettes, biga for ciabattas) to make a wide variety of bread
