I do not know much about sourdough starters, I tried to make my own but it didn't work, this did. I have had it going for a few weeks now. We have made pancakes, waffles, crepes with the extra sourdough and 2 batches of bread with the starter. The bread was pretty flat because it was gluten free, it tasted good though. I used superfine brown rice flour to feed it, then ran out and have used other flours, it is still doing well. (Posted on 12/10/2013)
It does require more feeding than traditional starter, but I love sourdough pancakes, so it's no big deal to me! Very tasty for being gluten-free, and I've been able to make decent bread with it as well. Due to food allergies, I have to avoid dairy, gluten, egg, soy, and other ingredients, so this brown rice starter has been a godsend for being able to enjoy gluten-free goodies. (Posted on 5/20/2014)
I've had to go gluten-free, so ordered this starter to try. It activated wonderfully! I'm very happy.
Now I'm having to learn about adjustments for high altitude, but it's all part of the learning process. :) (Posted on 10/30/2014)
I was frantic until I called customer support, and have had 2 apple cake - so far made from the discards! I added chopped apples, coconut oil and organic pastry flour and some other ingredients to make it like a pancake without having to cook them one by one. That moment you see bubbling? Priceless. I made treats for the dogs from the discards, too. (Posted on 11/4/2014)
I bought the brown rice sourdough starter and have been having great success with it. I followed the directions that come with it to get the sourdough fermenting, and then I followed the directions found in a gluten-free cooking magazine to make the bread. The sourdough ferments very well, and makes a wonderful, healthy loaf of bread. You save the some of the starter to make bread over and over from your original purchase. I recently substituted quinoa flour for brown rice and I like the taste of it even better. (Posted on 11/22/2014)
I'm still amazed that you can make sourdough with rice flour! It activated beautifully especially when I started weighing the ingredients instead of measuring. I have made the "GF Sourdough Naan" and the "Everyday Sandwich Bread" recipes on this website. They both turned out great! (Posted on 10/25/2015)
