Our sourdough culture starter kit is an excellent way to start your sourdough baking journey. The kit includes some of our well-established 11-year-old sourdough culture named ‘Eve’, which you can activate within a few days to make your first sourdough loaf of bread. The kit includes the following:
Dehydrated sourdough culture – The kit includes a packet of dehydrated sourdough culture named ‘Eve’. You’ll find the instructions on how to activate and use the culture in the kit instructions booklet.
Quality Glass Sealable Jar – Your new sourdough culture needs a home to live in, so we’ve included a high-quality glass jar with a metal lid and an optional cloth cover if you want the jar to be more breathable. The jar can live in your fridge or be kept out at room temperature to activate. The jar also has a useful ‘last fed on’ marking. Using the included date band, you determine when last your culture was fed. Jar size is 175mm (H) x 90mm (D) – 750ml capacity
Elastic Date Band – The kit includes a super useful elastic date band. When feeding the culture, simply line up the date band time, and day to the ‘last fed on’ marking on the jar. This will then allow you to determine how long it has been since the last culture feeding!
Temperature Sticker – The activity of your sourdough culture is linked to temperature, so we’ve included a temperature measuring sticker attached to the jar so that you can keep the culture at the right temperature for the best results.
Silicone Spatula – The included spatula is the perfect size for stirring the culture every time you feed it. The shape of the spatula is ideal for the jar size and allows it to be cleaned easily.
Sourdough culture kit instructions/recipe – You will receive instructions on how to activate, use, and maintain the sourdough culture. You will also get a simple sourdough bread recipe to follow.
