Donna’s Sourdough Culture
FREE SHIPPING! This sourdough starter culture is from my home. It was originally a Russian culture that I blended with a Finland culture. After I had it for a while, it adapted to my home here in Missouri. It does this by capturing wild yeasts from the air. Your culture will do the same and be unique to you. I have been using this particular culture for over 10 years and love it. After a few attempts to make my own sourdough culture from scratch, I found it too sour and didn’t rise very well. A sourdough culture that has been aged over many years has a mellow flavor and it really makes a difference when making sourdough bread.
You will love this culture and it works great with whole wheat flour or any other type of flour.
I only ship on Monday‘s this ensures they don’t sit in the post office for the weekend.
Sourdough starter cultures come from different regions and use wild yeasts in the air to adapt and culture your bread. It will also adapt to your home.

FREE SHIPPING! After you receive your sourdough starter culture you should open and and feed it immediately, because it will be hungry. Please watch for them and don’t leave them in your mail boxes for hours on end. The heat and freezing temperatures can damage them and even kill them.
I pack this live wet starter in a little glass jar and ship it via USPS. I only ship on Monday’s – this ensures it don’t sit in the post office for the weekend.
Add your starter to a glass canning jar with a lid. (or something similar) Add 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup flour and mix it into the jar with your starter, then seal the jar with a secure lid. Let it sit for at least eight hours, or even overnight. It will then be ready to use.
Additional instructions will be included with your starter.
Please read before ordering!
Starter Cultures are sensitive to excessive heat. Once your order is ready to ship, you’ll receive an e-mail with tracking information. Please watch for them and don’t leave them in your mail boxes for hours on end. The heat and freezing temperatures can damage them and even kill them.
I strongly encourage you to use the tracking information to anticipate the arrival of your culture, so that it can be taken inside and fed as soon as it arrives.
I only ship cultures Monday’s. This is to ensure that they get delivered as quickly as possible.
Don’t let your starter culture sit in your hot mailbox over the weekend if you happen to go out of town or something. Your starter culture will die if left in the heat.
This will make me very very sad!
