Our sourdough starter cultures are certified by the Irish Organic Association and we 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).
Our Colorado Brown 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.
An excellent wholemeal sourdough starter is really hard to find. We recently acquired a sample of this amazing wholemeal starter direct from the USA, where it had found it’s way from the Rocky Mountains in Colorado to a small bakery in San Francisco. We have been making brown sourdough bread with it ever since.
It makes a very solid dough, with a tangy, almost vinegar-like flavouring that inevitably comes through into any bread baked with it. It has an eruptive nature and we often find it has bubbled out of its container when left unattended for a day or so. It yields a fairly hefty wholemeal bread and it comes with a unique flavour that some of us here love and some of us just don’t get along with at all.
For those wanting to try something a little different, it is very interesting to work with.
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!
