Why culture your very own sourdough bread yeast?

  • It’s very simple, and easy to do
  • Bread made from cultured wild yeast has a better texture than commercially produced breads, made with instant yeast, preservatives, and other unnecessary additives like sugar
  • Sourdough culture contains lactobacilli which acts upon proteins (like gluten) and results in lactic acid as a by-product which lends sourdough its distinct flavour
  • Wild yeast culture Improves the bioavailability of nutrients in bread making it easier to digest
  • Yeast culture can be stored for more than two years when dried


You will need:

  • Stone ground rye flour (whole wheat flour)
  • Spring, mineral, or distilled water

How to:

Stage 1

  • Stir ½ teaspoon of dried starter culture into 1 tablespoon of water in a small jam jar, or similar container
  • Add 1 tablespoon rye flour and mix until consistency of pancake batter
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of water if necessary to reach desired consistency
  • Cover jar with tea towel/dish cloth (do not seal with lid)
  • Allow 24 for fermentation at an ambient temperature of 25°C

Stage 2

  • Transfer contents of jar to mixing bowl
  • Add 30 grams of rye flour and 30 milliliters of water
  • Stir vigorously
  • Cover 
  • Leave for 24 hours

Stage 3

  • Add 60 grams of rye flour and 60 milliliters of water
  • Stir vigorously
  • Cover
  • Leave for 24 hours
  • Your sourdough is now ready to bake! 
  • Make sure to keep a small amount of dough to repeat the stages 2-3 for the next loaf.
