Will I go to these lengths. It's nearly midnight; or 1am since the clocks switch tonight, and only for bread would I be up this late.
Will rise overnight 4-6 hrs and in the morning I will try, try again to make sourdough. It's just like anything, the more you try the more you notice what's happening beneath your fingers and the more you notice what it feels like when it's 'just right' (because eventually it WILL be 'just right')!
As I say: learning something new is really just about paying very close attention
