"... and the Count saved back a fourteenth part of the grain like a crofter wife saving bread dough for the next baking...." 
La vita nuova (The New Life) (c. 1293). Dante Alighieri 

That would be Italian, but strongly hints at a sour dough style bread. 

Thanks for all the references people have sent. Keep them coming if you find anything that is period and tells how to start a dough with out using beer.
