Sourdough starter


All Sourdough starters have one thing in common they all contain Lactobacilli (Lactic acid bacteria) which is responsible for the taste and the naturally occuring wild yeast responsible for starting the fermentation which will create the increase in dough volume.
But Bread making techniques will also influence the final product.
For example the state of your sourdough maturity will affect your bread's sour taste so does the fermentation time.
Indirectly dough mixing temperature and fermentation room temperature will also influence the taste of your bread.
Searching for the perfect bread for you is more complicated than just buying a new Sourdough or going to an advenced bread course it is a personnal bread journey and some people enjoy that challenge.

All our Sourdough can be bought in Dry Format or Live Format. .
With dry there is no pression you can activate it whenever you are ready but you have to go through the activation process, it is simple but it can take up to 5 days or more before the sourdough starter reaches its full strength.
Live Sourdough is ready to operate straight away this mean that when you receive your sourdough you should feed it leave it on the bench until it has doubled in volume then you can make your first bread.

Our Starters have been in use for more than 10 years, when we introduce a new one we put a "*" behind its name.
