This kit includes the following items:
This sourdough starter culture is my personal starter I’ve used for 15 years. 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 in Missouri and now California. It has a lot of diverse strains. It does this by capturing wild yeast from the air, and your culture will do the same and be unique to you and your home. I have been using this particular culture for over 15 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 years has a mellow flavor, and it really makes a difference to have a strong, long aged starter when making sourdough bread.
You will love this culture and it works great with white, whole-wheat flour or most other types of flour (Except Einkorn and gluten free flours).
I offer free shipping and only ship on Monday‘s – this ensures they don’t sit in the post office for the weekend.
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.
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. Please watch for them and don’t leave them in your mailboxes for hours on end. High heat temperatures can damage, and even kill the culture.
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!
After you receive your sourdough starter culture you should open and and feed it immediately, because it will be hungry.
I pack this live wet starter in a strong sealed bag. (Jars tended to explode so we opted for bags.) I offer free shipping and I ship it USPS priority mail. I only ship on Monday‘s this ensures it don’t sit in the post office for the weekend. Please watch for them and don’t leave them in your mail boxes for hours on end.

When you package ships and you receive your tracking number, you can check on the tracking page with USPS. You will see a drop down menu to the right that says; Available Actions and you can click text updates or email updates. Request Text Tracking to receive a text message when your package moves throughout the USPS network.
Add your sourdough 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 to insure you keep it fed and bubbly.
Due to the nature of this live culture, we cannot accept any returns. Please know that all sales are final.
