Starter Care

Feeding the Starter


  • 15 grams starter
  • 30 grams lukewarm water
  • 30 grams bread flour


  • Measure out 15 grams of the starter (up to 50 grams), and add double the grams of lukewarm water, stirring with your fingers to mix. Discard unused portion.
  • Add the same amount of bread flour as you did water and stir to mix.
  • Place in a large jar and set in a warm spot for 12-24 hours, before placing the lid on and putting in fridge.
  • Do weekly.


The instructor (Vanetine Kitamura) recommended using whole wheat bread flour for the starter, but feel free to use regularĀ breadĀ flour.
