I love this. I have to put in fridge and stop it every few days. However, I'm tying bread. Had some crepes for breakfast

    I'm new to baking with sourdough starter. So far I've tried waffles, pretzels, french bread and dinner rolls with good results. It's a lot to learn but your kind customer service will walk you go any questions.

    I ordered two of these, used one to begin a starter culture in a jar, and then I thought oh why not, and I put the other packet in the culture jar after a day or two, then just threw in a large amount, maybe a cup, of brown rice flour, added some water, stirred it up, and then it worked very well. I'm sure it would have worked with only one packet, but I wanted to see what would happen. I am grinding my own brown rice flour from Lundberg's organic sprouted brown rice. I have an electric mill with stone wheels or what you may call them. So I put a cup of dry rice in it, grind it, and then immediately put it in the culture jar. All I ever do with this stuff is make pancakes, which means I melt some butter in a cast-iron pan and then throw in some starter culture. It's really good.

  4. Super Fast Starter!

    I got mine started Monday morning and by this morning (Wednesday) it was all bubble and happy w/foam on top. I can't believe how fast this was to get started and I was wayyyyyy off w/the feedings. It was at least 12 hour between feedings both Mon night/Tues morning and last night to this morning. I was a little sticker shocked at the price but for the time it saved and how long I'll be using this - it's a steal! Thank you so much for this wonderful starter!!

  5. Excellent starter, quick to hydrate and get ready for baking!

    I hydrated my starter yesterday, several weeks after the expiry date (oops!) and within 24 hours it was bubbly and frothy. By the end of the second day, it was doubling in size and I was almost ready to bake with it! Excellent starter so far. Now we just need to actually bake with it. :)

  9. Difficult and Not Tasty

    It was a lot of work to keep it fed for so long - had to come for lunch every day to keep feeding it on schedule and then when I finally made the bread recipe - it tasted so bad I had to spit it out. I followed the directions and the recipe - i don't know what happened but just spent a ton of time and money on the special ingredients for not. I've done yoghurt cultures from here and they have all been great so I tried this one. Maybe I'm just not meant to be a bread maker. Trying cheese now.

    • As the product mention that the ingredients containing brown rice flour and live active cultures. So, I would like to know what are the types such as bacteria or yeast and the name of microorganisms?

      Thank you
    • They generally have a few strains, but we do not test individual batches of our heirloom sourdough starters for bacteria content; therefore we cannot make any guarantees as to the exact probiotic makeup of the cultures. Heirlooms can change slightly from batch to batch, and since it is not a lab created strain, it will not work for consistent testing.

    • I have gotten myself in a predicament. I didn't realize how much brown rice flour I would be using in getting the starter ready from the brown rice sourdough starter. I didn't have enough last night and tried to substitute it with some buckwheat flour. Will this cause an adverse problem in my starter? (I am on day 3.) thank you.
    • No worries! Since you are still in the activation phase, and because our sourdough's are extremely forgiving, I don't think you will have an issue. I would recommend, however, that you add only brown rice flour from this point forward. I'm not sure when you will be able to get some more, but as soon as you do, go ahead and feed it to your starter.:)

    • Is there yeast in the starter dough? We have yeast allergies in our family & need to avoid. Wondering what exactly is in the starter?
      Thanks!
    • The starter is organic flour and live cultures. So yes, there are natural sourdough bread yeasts in the starter since it is a portion of the starter before. There are many types of yeast around us, so it's best to check with your health practitioner for the best information.

    • Hi - I am wondering if I can use an organic sprouted gluten free flour that contains not only brown rice flour (first ingredient) but also oat and sorghum to activate/start my new starter? The directions specify only the brown rice. This is my first time, so I want to do what is best. :-)
    • The Gluten Free Starter needs to be activated in rice flour (brown is best). Once active and you have extra starter, you can experiment with your wonderful baking mix for feeding,

    • Sorry to be dense... please clarify for this newby... what do you mean 'discard down'? Do I mix the liquid or pour it off and then decrease the starter? Apologies.
    • For a more mild flavor, pour off any liquid that may have formed on top, stir the starter and discard all but the required amount. To achieve a more sour flavor, stir the liquid in before discarding and feeding. You will find additional information here: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/sourdough Scroll down for gluten free articles and feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.

    • Do I mix the liquid in with the starter before removing all but 1/2 cup? Can I use it to start another starter? LOL.. Serious question, tho. Thank you!
    • When it's time to feed again, you always discard down first. Then you add the appropriate amount of water and flour.

      And yes, your discard could very well be another starter if you also feed it! If you have more questions, please contact us at [email protected]

  • From Lisa at 4/20/2015 8:23 AM
    • If I'm working with the gluten free starter I need to feed brown rice flour but can I use a gluten flour like wheat when making the actual bread recipe?
    • Yes, that should work for purposes of baking bread. It won't be gluten free of course, and might have slightly different characteristics than you expect. We've not experimented with that!
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Jenny at 10/20/2014 10:07 AM
    • Should I be discarding the liquid on top of the starter before I feed it or use it again?
    • Yes, discard any liquid that formed before feeding again. The liquid layer usually indicates that your starter is hungry and needs to be fed more often.
