It is necessary to produce a pre-fermented mixture of flour and water, referred to as the sourdough starter, before you begin building your sourdough loaf.
Creating Your Sourdough Starter
The sourdough starter is a live culture that feeds the wild yeasts and bacteria in the flour by starting fermentation when combined. As it grows, this starter turns into yeast, giving the dough its characteristic sourdough flavor and aiding in dough leavening. Making your own sourdough starter is a simple process that takes 7 to 10 days to complete and is ready for use.
You Will Need:
- Whole wheat flour or all-purpose flour
- Filtered or heated to a boil and then chilled
- Kilner® Starter Set for Sourdough
Day 1: Using the Kilner® measuring lid, measure out 60 grams of flour and water each, then pour them into the jar and give it a good stir. Put the metal cover on loosely and leave it to stand at room temperature for a full day.
