Pain au Levain is thee classic sourdough bread. It is made by the fermentation of dough using naturally occurring lactobacilli and yeast. Sourdough bread has a more sour taste depending on the region its produced in, and better inherent keeping qualities than breads made with baker's yeast, due to the lactic acid produced by the lactobacilli.
