80g Lake District Organic Yeast Sourdough Starter | Baking Yeast Description

Unless you have been living under a rock recently you must have heard about sourdough - the delicious, tangy and chewy bread that hipster cafes and bakeries are known for serving their smashed avocado on. But there is a good reason for the boom in popularity of sourdough - it’s absolutely scrumptious. So if you love baking and want to try your hand at making your own sourdough, or you have tried to make a starter in the past and failed, turn to this Lake District Organic Yeast Sourdough Starter for all of your sourdough needs.

The ‘mother’ of this sourdough starter was established in 1979 in the Lake District and has continued to be fed and kept alive ever since, going on to create delicious loaves and incredible pizza bases for the last 40 years. It is certified organic yeast and is perfect for using in any of your baking exploits, adding a tantalisingly delicious sweet and sour flavour to bread. Because of the age of this starter, it is very stable and will be very easy to continue to keep alive yourself. 

The 80 grams of sourdough starter you will receive will be plenty to use for two loaves of bread and will have enough left over for you to feed and continue to use. You will receive full instructions on how to care for your starter as well as a recipe for sourdough pancakes. All you need is flour and water to keep this baking yeast going indefinitely. So grab your bowl, your spoon and this organic yeast and add an extra level of tastiness to your next loaf of bread!

Sourdough starter
I am new to sourdough bread making but this product works really well and instructions for starter were clear.I would suggest including a recipe for a basic loaf as recipes on line are bewildering for a novice like me.

Wonderful, very active sourdough starter

It arrived triple-sealed in good time with detailed instructions on what to do and has made some lovely bread. Highly recommended if you want to leapfrog over the boring, hit-and-miss first stage of sourdough baking.

Makes great sourdough!

Arrived well packaged in a ziplock bag and with very clear instructions on how to turn the (modest) amount of sourdough into a usable quantity. Have so far used it once (first time ever baking sourdough) following Patrick Ryan’s YouTube recipe and produced two great loaves first time out. “Bob the blob” is now living in the fridge and will be out to work again next weekend.
