A friend of ours just dropped off a Toastmaster breadmaker and a bunch of breadmaking stuff. One included a Atkin's Brand Sourdough prepackaged mix. I got everything in my maker and need to set my timer but all the box says is to put it on regular or basic for the fullest cycle. What the heck does that mean? How long do I cook this for? If I do the fullest cycle it's about 13 hours long! This is my first time using a breadmachine and my first time doing sourdough. The sooner someone can answer the better! My ingridients are waiting for me in the bucket!

Bread machines are all so different. It sounds like yours has a delay timer. Obviously you don't want to use that - it's for, say, starting bread before you go to sleep and having it ready when you get up. Is there a "Basic" or "White" cycle?

I have Basic MED, Basic DARK, and Basic LIGHT. I choose the bread loaf size, the type of bread (those plus sweet, wheat, french, fast) and then the timer.

Those would be the crust color settings, so just set it according to your preference

I got all that part. But how long do I set the timer? I googled it and everything said I was needing to let it rise and what not. I couldn't find anything for prepackaged stuff.

I don't think you need to set it at all unless you want a delay.

What's the model number? I bet I can find you a manual.

I have a manual for it and couldn't see anything for sourdough. If I don't need to set it do I just hit start and hope it turns out? Will it cook it the right amount of time based off my crust preference? This is my first breadmaker.....looks like I will need to read my book on it.

Yeah, I would just go with the basic white setting and whatever crust you want. Mixes are fairly foolproof

Bit of a digression here, but if it's a mix, it's not truly sourdough It's sourdough flavored if that makes any sense. Real sourdough is made with a starter and generally requires a sponge and long rise times and that sort of fun stuff (bit of a hobby of mine lately, got a batch rising in the kitchen now in fact).
