A guest post from Instagrammer georgiamaybakes this week on her sourdough starter.
I am delighted to introduce you all to Steve, my first ever sour dough starter! .. well, my first ever surviving sour dough starter 🙈 .. after a tragic attempt about 5 years ago (it didn’t bubble and grew green fuzzy stuff 🙈), I was too nervous give it another go - despite always really wanting to. Fortunately for me, the lovely @_rebeccabakes told me about the starter that she bought from @beanandgrainuk .. safe to say that 15 minutes and about £13 later, my order was confirmed.
I have been impressed with @beanandgrainuk ever since.. Steve arrived 4 days later and I can confirm he is alive, hungry and well - which is impressive considering he spent a weekend in the British postal system! ..
I would really recommend buying a pre-made starter to anyone who has always wanted to try making sour dough bread but hasn’t had the confidence to make their own starter, the starter kit from @beanandgrainukincluded the starter, some extra flour, a jar and the all important instructions.
My only criticism is that the jar that comes with the starter is a little small, but larger ones are really easy to come across so it’s not a big problem :) ... let the sour dough journey commence! #baking#homemade #sourdough#sourdoughstarter #homebaker
