I don't know a thing about rabbits Jared, I hope yours is just a bit under the weather and will be OK soon.

CRISIS AVOIDED.

turns out the fridge somehow got unplugged. Don’t know what happened. Well, it’s working now.
Phew! When our fridge's compressor crapped out (all of 6 years old) it held above 32° which wasn't useful for the freezer. I put it all in the small chest freezer figuring all was well until I could get the machine fixed or replaced. Then things were defrosting in there! I thought it crapped out too but somehow the temp dial on the front of the machine had been moved to the warmest setting. I have no idea how, it isn't something we mess with.

You can use less-- if the bread rises like you want it will be fine.

The closer you are to 50% wheat flour the more vital gluten you will need.
My basic sourdough rises just fine with 1/2 whole wheat flour and no vital gluten.
Maybe I need the vital gluten for the Champlain bread?

History Of The Starter?
In the mid 1800's the Oregon Trail was the main route west for settlers, farmers, lumbermen and prospectors. The Trail started in the state of Missouri in about the center of the continental US and meandered NW for about 2000 miles to the Oregon Territory. Other trails branched off of the main trail, SW to Santa Fe and west to California and elsewhere.

The Starter came West in 1847 with one of Carl's ancestors who traveled the Oregon Trail to Oregon by wagon train. There is a paragraph about the history of the starter in the historical brochure by Carl that is on our Web site.

The Oregon Trail Interpretive Center has a lot of information on the Oregon Trail. It is east of Baker City, OR fairly near where Carl’s ancestors settled near Burns, OR, south and west of it. They likely passed the site before turning south towards Burns.
I can't read from the links as the writing is way to small. But i find this really a very interesting subject . Thank you so much for sharing this. :)
