San Francisco sourdough starter is available as a dried culture. Dried sourdough starters are shelf-stable and do not have to be fed or cared for immediately. After activated, for best results, we recommend feeding your sourdough starter weekly. Dried sourdough starters can be ready to create baked goods within 3 to 5 days.

Use Instructions

Activating the Culture:

  • Add packet of starter to 1 tablespoon flour and 1 tablespoon water (free of chlorine and fluoride) in a quart-size glass jar and stir thoroughly. Cover the jar with a coffee filter or breathable material secured with rubber band and culture in a warm place (70 - 85°F) for 12-24 hours.
  • After 12-24 hours, feed the starter with an additional 2 tablespoons of flour and 2 tablespoons water. Stir vigorously. Your starter should have the consistency of pancake batter, and you may need to add more flour or water.
  • After 12-24 hours, feed the starter with an additional ¼ cup of flour and ¼ cup water. Stir vigorously.
  • After another 12-24 hours, feed the starter with an additional ½ cup of flour and ½ cup water. Stir vigorously.
  • Every 12-24 hours, discard down to ½ cup of starter and then feed the starter with ½ cup water and ½ cup flour. Continue this feeding schedule, and after 3 to 7 days, your starter will be bubbling regularly within a few hours of feeding.
