Classic Sourdough Bread Recipe + Variations

Here it is: The core, classic sourdough bread recipe using our Wild Alaska Sourdough starter. Everyone has their own method for baking sourdough bread, and I'm sharing my favorite after countless tests and experiments.

This bread is perfectly crusty with a soft interior, a mild tang (or more if you try the cold ferment variation!) and some subtle nutty sweetness from the Alaska barley flour.

Following the recipe you'll find some optional variations. I invite you to have some fun with the recipe and its variants. Experiment, try new things, make it your own, and share your creations with the people you love!
