Details


Originating in the great state of Alaska, this is an easy-to-use classic sourdough starter culture. Alaskan starter requires shorter fermentation times and therefore can be ready to make baked goods quickly. 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 to 5 days.

Detailed instructions will be included with your order. Click here to view our Alaskan Sourdough Starter instructions.

This starter started me making sourdough! I had no trouble cultivating the starter; after 7 days, I enjoyed my first loaf of delicious and slightly tangy sourdough bread. (Posted on March 5, 2014)

I've done a few sourdough starters in the past. One I cultivated myself and also CFH New England starter (which is very good, too). This is a nice, easy, vigorous,,and forgiving starter. It has a nice soft tang to it. I never throw out excess but store in big jar in refrigerator and use for crackers and pancakes. Even the unfed excess will continue to bubble a little with no hooch. I really like it. (Posted on January 30, 2014)
Good stuff Review by dough nut

I'm a newcomer to sourdough bread baking and to a lesser degree, bread baking in general. This is the first sourdough starter I've tried. I followed the directions for reviving it, and it did take close to seven days to really get bubbling. Don't lose faith! I've been using it in con junction with the basic country loaf recipe/technique in the Tartine bread book for the last several months and it's been really easy to use. I haven't always been 100% on top of feeding it on schedule but it has been very forgiving. It works fairly quickly. It isn't inherently all that sour, but if you let the dough proof at a low temperature for a long time you can really bring out the sour flavor. Our house tends to be in the low to mid 60's in the winter, and that seems to be fine. To make it really sour, I put it in the fridge overnight to proof. (Posted on January 6, 2014)

I bought this after a failed attempt at a starter from another company. This is such an active starter and smells wonderful. I've baked bread twice with and and also made some pancakes. Turned out wonderful! (Posted on December 3, 2013)
Very Easy Starter Review by Tom

I got this about a year and a half ago and am very pleased with it. I've had no trouble maintaining the starter; I keep it in the refrigerator between uses. The starter has a very mild flavor, so keep that in mind. Don't expect a strong sourdough taste. (Posted on March 29, 2011)
