    • I like to bake with a combination of flour, including white whole wheat, unbleached flour, and sprouted whole wheat flour as well as other healthy grains, although most of the time, the wholewheat and unbleached flours are my 'go-to' blends.Can I use whole grain flour and expect quality products from the Alaskan Sourdough Starter? Also, how versatile is this starter for baking not only loaf breads but also pancakes and biscuits? Am I expecting too much versatility? :0)
    • The Alaskan Sourdough Starter is a white flour starter but once activated, you can change it over to whole wheat flour for feeding. You'll find information about that process here: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/how-switch-sourdough-new-type-flour
