Steps to making your sourdough starter:
Step by step guide:
Pour Flakes into a medium jar, add 4 tablespoons of lukewarm filtered or spring water and stir. Cover the jar with cloth, allow to dissolve for minimum 60 minutes. Once all flakes are dissolved, stir in 30g of bread flour and cover again. Store on the bench top for 24 hours.
Add 2 tablespoons of water and 30g of bread flour and stir thoroughly. Set aside for another 24 hours while you think of your starter name – check out our blog post about naming your starter, it’s bad luck not to have one!
Feed again with 4 tbsp of water and 60g of bread flour. Mix well, cover and set aside. The consistency will resemble pancake batter with fermentation bubbles starting to appear.
Your starter is very hungry and active today. Keep feeding with 4 tbsp of water and 60g of bread flour and mix very well. After feeding, have some fun and mark the level of your jar with a rubber band, you should notice your starter bubbling, rising and doubling in height in no time.
When your sourdough starter rises to double its size and maintains height, it is ready to bake!
