Tips for Sourdough Success

  • Start with a strong starter. A strong starter is more likely to give you good results. If you’re just starting out, it’s a good idea to get your starter from a friend or sourdough baker who has a reliable one. You can also find sourdough starters for sale online.
  • Use the right flour. Sourdough breads and recipes using sourdough starter are best made with high-protein flour, such as bread flour, spelt flour, or whole wheat flour. These flours have more gluten, which helps to give sourdough bread its chewy texture.
  • Proof the dough in a warm place. Proofing is the process of letting the dough rise in a warm place. This allows the wild fermented yeast in the dough to grow and produce carbon dioxide, which gives the bread its rise. The ideal temperature for proofing sourdough bread is between 75 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Have fun! Baking with recipes using sourdough starter can be fun and rewarding. Don’t be afraid to try new things and see what you can create!
