This starter is great!

I purchased two of the rye starters in the past because I know myself so well. I used both. I had no problems making a nice strong sourdough starter both times. I knew I'd eventually get lazy and ruin my first starter by neglecting it too long (like I said, I know myself), and that's just what happened. My second batch is bubbling away. I wanted to try the two other sourdough starters so I came back to purchase them. I made crackers with my discarded sourdough starter in the past and they were awesome! Much better than store-bought crackers. Don't throw away your discard! I started my recent rye starter with all rye flour like the instructions indicate but after it starting bubbling in a 12-hour period I switched to a 50/50 rye/all-purpose einkorn combination. I had little success getting my own einkorn sourdough starter going from scratch, so I tried it with this rye starter. Once I had it rolling along, it got the einkorn going too, and it's going strong. I can't wait to bake with it.

Love this sourdough...

I haven't baked/cooked with my rye sourdough yet, but I can say it has been very easy to start and smells great.

a Great Starter

Amazingly enough, I put my starter together on a very hot day with the air conditioning running. Eventually I noticed that I was wasting all this great heat, so i put the jar out in the garage. Magical bubbles! I've only made two things from it so far: crepes from just plain starter itself fried in butter, and then the no-knead focaccia. That second one was interesting, because I put too much dough into the pan (the recipe in the Rye cookbook that I also got here said to make a thinner layer of dough), but i went ahead and did it anyway, and after twenty minutes at 450 I heard some sounds and the loaf pan was boiling and bubbling with olive oil and I suppose the water that came out of the dough! So I basically boiled it for twenty minutes in olive oil! But I took it out of the oven and let it sit on the counter, and the liquid was soon reabsorbed into the "bread." I haven't tried it yet, but it smells terrific.

Great product

Love this! My sister became so excited to hear I was making sourdough rye bread as it is one of her favourites. It was easier than I thought and was thoroughly enjoyed. Now for sourdough rye English muffins...yeah!!!

Excellent Sourdough

I know I could have shared my discard, but I gave my second purchase to a friend for her birthday. Despite a little slow development, both suddenly went into action, which sourdough can be like that. I contacted Customer Service and had a question answered quickly. I am very happy with this. Thank you.
