So… if you have a sourdough starter, don’t forget about it for a few days

Today I found out what happens when you forget about a sourdough starter for a few days.

Sourdough a-rising

I’ve got my first batch of gluten-free sourdough bread rising in the kitchen. The starter is brown rice flour, and the bread recipe is from HBin5, made as a rosemary, olive, and feta sourdough inspired by Gluten Free Girl (modified by omitting part of the flour and water that is replaced by the starter)… hopefully […]


Restarted the sourdough starter using 100g brown rice flour and 100g room temperature Brita’d water.  I’ve been tossing half of it and feeding it 50g each of flour and water ever day for the past three or four days, and was a little worried yesterday that it hadn’t started bubbling yet.

[…]

Sourdough starter

It’s been ridiculously difficult to find information about gluten-free sourdough starters on the web.  I’m not sure why, but I was researching this for a while before diving in. I found one recipe at Ginger Lemon Girl, which seemed easy enough that the only thing I’d lose if it didn’t work was a couple of […]
