Item details

Sourdough stater, also known as levain, is a mixture of flour and water that’s been allowed to ferment. This transformation happens thanks to wild yeast that live on fresh wheat and end up in flour during the milling process. Water brings dormant wild yeast to life; it’s kind of like magic. Or sea monkeys.

The starter you're buying was handmade in my kitchen in San Francisco. I used a mix of white, whole wheat, and rye flours. The starter was air dried, and will keep indefinitely if stored in cool, dark and dry conditions. (Seriously, dry sourdough starter has been found in Egyptian tomes and successfully reconstituted. Yeast are pretty cool little beasties).

This is a perfect and unique gift for beginners and experts alike.

2oz of dried starter is perfect for a frequent baker or when you need to do a lot of baking at once. Once revived, it will yield approximately 8oz of sourdough starter, which is enough for most recipes and leaves you with plenty of starter left over for next time.

Included in the package are instructions for reviving the starter. You can also check our website for tips, tricks, and instructions on keeping your starter going once you've revived it.
