    Question: I was ready to give up on ever finding a Sourdough Raisin loaf recipe that achieved the bread for which I have been searching…then I tried this one! I still need to work out some kinks (my shortcomings, not the recipe!) but I am curious about something…why does this recipe call for commercial yeast, AND a biga, AND starter?
    Also, the recipe never specifies at what point to add the commercial yeast, so I just tossed it in with the dry ingredients. I’m just learning so I’m not really sure.
    Thank you for the wonderful recipe. It is exactly the loaf I’ve pined for!!

    • Hi Morgen,
      Sorry, I should be more specific.
      The commercial yeast known as cake yeast is hydrated and ready to use meaning just toss in the mixing machine along with the rest of the ingredients. Dry yeast should be hydrated in warm water to allow the yeast to activate. I have updated the recipe with this step.
      In regards to your question about the Biga and Sourdough. I developed this recipe with both starters to give the bread a unique flavor profile and improve its crumb and crust characters. The biga gives the bread a nice yeasty (alcohol) flavor note and the sourdough starter adds a creamy lactic acid flavor. You can one if you wish, you will still end up with a fantastic tasting loaf.

      Regards,
