Sourdough Starter Q&A
How is the sourdough starter prepared?
Our starter is dehydrated so that it can be shipped safely. When you receive it, just add flour and water according to the directions here!
What kind of flour should I use?
This starter was started and nurtured on Alaska stone-ground barley flour, so we recommend feeding the starter with it. If barley's not your thing, no worries! This starter will happily be fed white flour too.
Is the sourdough starter gluten-free?
The barley flour we use does contain gluten, so this product is not gluten-free.
About Our Bread Proofing Kit
Our 9" banneton basket, also known as a brotform or proofing basket, helps hold the shape of your bread as it proofs. The woven basket leaves circular imprints on the bread that make it look like it came from an artisan bakery. It's made of purely natural rattan, FDA approved, free from dye and chemicals, and useful to wick moisture away from the surface so your bread has that perfect, crispy round crust and beautiful ridges.
The lame or scoring tool tells the dough where to rise.
The linen creates a smoother crust for creative scoring designs.
The metal dough scraper is used for separating and shaping the dough.
