What you will learn
Sourdough starters are really the key to everything we do here at the sourdough club. Once a starter is created, a portion is used to create a leaven which not only gives your bread a beautiful rise but also ferments the flour to make your bread much healthier. Slow fermented dough unlocks nutrients within the flour making it much easier to digest. This also helps to nourish your own microbiome, and a happy microbiome can lead to better health and well being. The sourdough starter is absolutely crucial to the process, and our comprehensive videos demystify this process into easy to follow instructions. We look at types of starters, how to refresh your starter, starter maintenance as well as recognising and correcting mistakes.
