80g Organic Certified Alaskan Sourdough Starter Culture

Buy with confidence…

We are certified by the Irish Organic Association and undergo regular inspections to ensure our cultures, ingredients used and food safety management systems are up to the highest possible standard (IOA License No: 7812).

This is our Alaskan Sourdough Starter, it comes direct from the Aleutian islands of Alaska and is over 100 years old.

Early settlers in the West, especially those adventurers who traveled north to Alaska, relied on sourdough to leaven bread before commercial baking powder and yeast were readily available. “Sourdough” even became the nickname for California Klondike miners at the turn of the last century because they carried starter in their backpacks to make bread without having to find a town, let alone yeast.

This is one for the real sourdough crazies out there as it’s remote location brings with it some very unique yeasts that give our Alaskan Sourdough Starter a very unique flavour. It adds a much milder, sometimes almost sweet flavour to anything it’s used in. If you want to experience American sourdough but you’re not a fan of the really sour San Francisco style, we highly recommend you try this starter!

Authentic Sourdough Starter Cultures

Our Sourdough comes sourced from starter cultures that have been in use for over a century. A mature, well aged sourdough starter has a much stronger and distinctive sourdough flavour than one recently started from scratch. We have worked hard to obtain the very best sourdough from across the world. We feed our starter cultures twice a day; ensuring that what you purchase from us is a very active, starter culture.

Authentic sourdough bread can only be made by using real sourdough starter cultures and not from any kind of packet or powder! Our cultures are 100% live and are a viable colony so from just one purchase you will be able to produce sourdough for the rest of your life!

For home use you should keep it in the fridge and feed it only once a week. It is remarkably resilient and will live forever if taken care of properly.

Fermenting at home has never been easier!

I couldnt wake my own starter after sleeping in the fridge for some time. Did this so many times but this time not sure what went wrong. I wanted to bake right away so decided to order from Kefir Grains....

Excellent grains. Very glad that we purchased. Excellent customer service too!

Our products are living cultures and for best results they should ideally be used within 48hrs of receiving them. The faster the cultures are used the higher the success rate. It is normal for cultures to take 3-5 brews to fully settle into their new environment as they are very temperature sensitive and need time to recover from the shipping process. Please see instructions for more details.
