Authentic San Francisco Sourdough Starter I acquired this starter over 30 years ago when I lived in California from one of the relatives of a now defunct bakery in the bay area. This starter is one of the oldest and I think the best Sourdough Starter ever, but than I’m a little biased. Made this Starter Extra Sour for my wife and I,this makes great long loafs for Garlic bread. This is an all Organic culture and is well over a hundred Years old. Properly cared for it can live forever. There are stories of Sourdough being used as Chinking on The old cabins used by the 49ers that has been revived. Our sourdough culture contains the wild yeast and a friendly Lactobacillus bacteria, which produces the sour in sourdough breads. Baking sourdough bread with our sourdough culture is a fermentation process. You will receive enough dried starter for two starts about 2 tablespoons. Our well-established starter will give excellent baking results when fed every week or two. All it needs is pure water (I use distilled) and flour. However, it can be frozen for extended periods its only enemy is excessive heat. In addition to the dried starter, you will receive by email after the auction instructions on care and feeding your new pet and bread recipes. You will be Very Happy with the Quality of this starter. email if you have any questions.
NOTE: As you grow use and re grow your starter it will take on
the wild yeast in the air/water unique to where you live.
At some point it will no longer be the starter I sent you.
The original San Francisco starter is grown for me a few miles
from where the original was started. This allows for the integrity
of the original starter to be maintained.
