Why I Love This Product

My Danish rye activated very quickly and bubbles happily. It smells wonderful! I leave it on the counter rather than putting it in the fridge since we use it so much. The portion I discard every night becomes overnight pancakes or waffles for breakfast. And we love the bread I make several time a week. I add rye flour and a mix of other flours for a wheat-free bread.

    • For the Danish Rye Sourdough Starter, are you supposed to only use rye flour?
    • When you first activate one of our starters, it's best to do so with the type of flour it has been grown in, in this case rye. Once the starter is established, you can convert it to use a different flour by simply substituting the new flour at each feeding, until the starter is fully switched over. You might want to do this with extra starter, keeping the original as a backup.

    • Are any of the sourdough starters completely dairy-free? Are there any ingredients other than flour and water?
    • All of the sourdough starters are completely dairy-free. None of them have any ingredients other than flour and water, and of course the yeasts and bacteria that make up the culture.

I have used this now on 3 totally stellar pumpernickel bread batches. The culture worked quickly and it was very healthy and active. Love this product. (Posted on April 14, 2014)
My Favorite Sourdough Review by Candace

The Danish Rye Sourdough starter is by far the best starter I've worked with. I can be a little neglectful at times and this starter can take it. It seems to work at a much slower (read: you made need to allow more time for things to rise) rate than other starters I've tried, but it doesn't go as sour as quick either. I've definitely abused it and after refreshing it bounces right back. I use Great River Organic Milling Rye flour that I buy in 25# bags, which last me around 4 months. Can't say enough good things about this starter and even though I've mostly dabbled in pancakes and quick breads, I am working my way up to some loaves of bread soon. (Posted on February 10, 2014)

This is a great product! My husband and I decided to give up wheat for awhile and this product allowed us to still make delicious and nutritious bread at home. It works great and I use the starter for pancakes and waffles as well. Thank you! (Posted on December 1, 2013)

I got this as a thank you gift for something (I don't remember what anymore.) All I had to do was pay for shipping, but it has been about two months ago and the starter has been very happy. I've been feeding it rye flour morning and night. I keep a pure starter in a jar and then when I get too much in the jar, I'll put some in a larger crock and feed that with whatever flour I want to or feel like. I've made biscuits, pancakes, waffles, crepes, and pizza crust this way. The sourdough flavor has not been overpowering in any of these recipes. (Posted on February 6, 2013)
