GF Sourdough

Updated: Nov 20, 2023


1 cup GF all purpose flour

1 cup water


  • Combine 1 cup GF flour with 1 cup water, stirring until al the clumps are out.

  • Cover with a kitchen towel, and leave untouched overnight. (preferably overnight)

  • On the second day, discard half of the starter. Add another 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of water.

*If the starter is very thick like pizza dough, add more water. You want it the consistency of pancake batter. If it is too thin, add more flour.

  • Each day for the next 2-5 days, discard half of the starter and add a 1:1 flour to water ratio.

  • Keep noting the consistency of the starter and adjust amounts of flour and water as necessary.

  • Once your starter shows signs of life (smells like sourdough bread, increases in volume two to fourfold after each feeding and is very bubbly. You can use it in recipes).

How to use your sourdough starter

  • Use the discard in recipes, and continue feeding the start.

  • Give some of the starter to family/friends, use starter for sourdough things, continue feeding starter

  • Use the starter for awhile, get sick of sourdough, stick the starter in the fridge and allow it to go dormant.
