Our Australian sourdough starter culture is perfect for making artisan-style breads. For best results, we recommend feeding your sourdough starter weekly.

This sourdough starter is available as a dried culture. Dried sourdough starters are shelf stable and do not have to be fed or cared for immediately. Dried sourdough starters can be ready to create baked goods within 3-5 days.

    • What is the best material for a container to store the starter? Also how big of a container do I need? I ask because I've heard glass and stoneware are good to use, but don't really understand the differences between the two or if there is something else better. I'm currently in school for baking & pastry, and I'm looking to complete my externship in Australia. So I of course I wanted to get a taste of their style and flavor of bread.

    • Glass or ceramic containers work equally well for fermentation. The one you use depends on what you have available and how much you are prepared to spend. Glass containers such as Ball canning jars are easy to find and relatively inexpensive.

      Ceramic crocks or bowls can often be found at second hand stores. New ceramic crocks or bowls are also easy to find, but cost more. If you choose a ceramic container, make sure it is lead-free and be sure to examine it for any cracks that can harbor harmful bacteria.

      To begin activating your starter, we recommend a quart-sized container.

excellent product and wonderful customer service Review by Diana

I had not received my original order due to no fault of Cultures for Life. I contacted my postal service and was told that the postperson definitely remembered delivering a small envelope to my address a few days earlier. I contacted Cultures for Life and their response was to immediately send out a replacement. Upon receipt of the box (not small envelope) I noticed that another box just happened to appear in my mailbox. Cultures for Life was very helpful and the product ordered is delicious with clear directions and great recipes.
