Dehydrated sourdough starter 1 oz.


Activating Your Dry Sourdough Starter

  • Crumble 1 ounce of dry starter into a glass bowl or canister (if you’re using a canister, make sure to remove the seal so the starter can breathe).
  • Pour 1/2 cup of room temperature water onto the dry starter.
  • Let it sit for 2-3 hours. After sitting, you should start seeing tiny little bubbles in your water.
  • Stir the softened starter and add a heaping cup of flour (all purpose or whole wheat) add 3/4 cup of room temperature water. Stir together very well and cover with plastic or a towel making sure to leave some breathing space on a couple of edges. It should be the consistency of pancake batter.
  • Set in a warm place for 8 to 12 hours. At this point, you should see lots of bubbles forming in your starter.
  • Feed your starter another heaping cup of flour and a cup of room temperature water. Mix very well and cover.
  • Let it sit for another 12 hours in a warm place. Now your starter should be very bubbly and “happy”, you are ready to start baking!
