With this failproof starter, the more you bake, the more your starter will develop, and the better your bread will turn out.
BSF Kitchen Test: 04/18/20
Day Three & Day Four
Day Five and After
Today is the first day you will refresh your starter, which you will repeat once a day until it rises up and forms bubbles within 6 to 8 hours. That may happen after a week, or it may take a few days longer. Until you see your starter bubbling in this time frame, your starter is not ready for baking bread. Storing the starter in a clear glass container can help you observe the progress better. Until your starter is strong, you will only use a small piece to refresh from Day Five onward (just 2 teaspoons or 10 g) and discard the rest. The more you bake, the more your starter will develop, and the better your bread will turn out.
REFRESHING YOUR STARTER (Baking 3 loaves p/week)
If you need a larger batch of starter for more baking, you can double the recipe for refreshing and follow the same instructions.

Do you have a bread recipe to go with this starter, please? Also, I’m confused about a larger batch of starter for baking. How do I get a quantity of starter, say 2 cups or more? Do I keep doubling the same amount suggested (e.g., the 20 g einkorn sourdough starter, 100 g water, 90 g ground einkorn) each day until I get the 2 cups? Thanks for the einkorn starter recipe, it worked well for me. I’m ready to bake!

We are very glad to hear you are enjoying our blog post! As part of the series on Einkorn & Sourdough, we will be publishing bread recipes for an Einkorn Ciabatta & an Einkorn sandwich loaf over the next couple weeks. We always thoroughly test our recipes in our own kitchen first.
If you want to create a larger batch of starter for baking I would follow the instruction for initially doubling the starter recipe (see above at the end of the post), and build on that through Day 2, 3, 4 & 5. If that is still not enough, then continue to use the ‘refresh’ instructions to build more. That is the most I can recommend right now as we haven’t tested ‘starting’ amounts larger than that.
Hope this helps in answering your questions!
