Kits include clip top jars, starter, instructions and flour if you need it.
Making bread at home is a very rewarding pastime, and you'll soon want to move onto traditional sourdough recipes using home cultured yeast rather than the commercial dried types.
One of the frustrating things when starting out is getting a sourdough starter going, it's hit and miss and takes a while.
Our sourdough starter kits will take some of the frustration away for you, as long as you successfully refresh the starter! The kits include clip top jar(s) and, optionally, flour to get you started.
The starter has been superb. We have two others on the go (slightly different flour mixes) and it has competed well for taste, texture and importantly crust. Thank you, Ian.
The starter in the pot is an offshoot from our own starter; fed then potted just as it’s stopped developing and then frozen. It should be thawed by the time you get it. It will be resting so will need refreshing, or feeding as we say.
Full instructions are included in the pack and can be found here on our web site.
