YOUR TOP 10 QUESTIONS ABOUT SOURDOUGH

Among the questions I frequently read, many are about the Sourdough Starter and the best way to manage it daily.

Sometimes, there are many questions we ask ourselves as we refresh the starter or face unexpected situations. So, I collected and answered your 10 most frequently asked questions about Sourdough Starter.

Let’s go and see then!

Table of Contents

I received the Sourdough Starter as a gift. How do I store it?

You can store the Sourdough wrapped in a cloth, tied up, or soaked in water. Both methods are widespread, but the second one is easier to manage, even for those with little experience. How to Store the Sourdough Starter

How many days should I refresh the Sourdough?

If you store your Sourdough at room temperature, refresh it daily. If you maintain it in the fridge, you can feed it every 5/7 days. Here’s how you can easily store your Sourdough at home

How do I store Yeast in Water?

First, refresh it (as usual) and soak it in a bowl of cold tap water (19°C -66°F). Then, you can store it at room temperature for 24 hours or in the refrigerator at +4°C (39°F) for 5/7 days. How to Store the Sourdough

My Levain is preserved in a pot. Can I change it into a Sourdough and store it in the water?

Yes, refresh by progressively decreasing the amount of water. Levain is usually fed equal water and flour (100% hydration). Starting from this ratio, decrease the percentage of water daily by 10% until you reach 30% (1kg of yeast + +1kg of flour + +300gr of water). Here, you can find how to change your Levain into Sourdough.

I’m storing Sourdough tied up. Can I keep it in the water?

Yes, soak it in water at 38°C (100°F) for about 20 minutes and then refresh the yeast with an equal weight of flour and 30% water over the flour’s weight (1kg yeast +1kg flour + 300 g water). Once ready, soak it in cold tap water and keep it for 24 hours at room temperature. The next day, you will start with the usual refreshments.

Is it better to store Sourdough tied up or in the water?

Storing Sourdough in the water is more manageable. It allows you to control its acidity better (because it is dissolved in the water).

How much water should I soak the Sourdough?

The ideal proportion is for the water to be about 3 times the amount of Sourdough. Thus, soak 1kg of Sourdough in 3 liters of water.

How can I measure the pH of the Sourdough?

Measuring pH is not useful because the data we read in the pH meter will be the sum of the 2 acidities: lactic (produced by lactic acid bacteria) and Acetic (created mostly by yeast). The critical factor is the proportion between the 2 acidities. We could have a sourdough with a correct global acidity (e.g., pH 4) but with an excessive lactic or acetic acidity. If you want to know how to fix your Sourdough, look at this page.

Can I knead the Sourdough Starter without a Stand Mixer?

You will need a little more strength to work the dough!

What is the difference between Sourdough and the liquid sourdough starter (Levain) stored in a jar?

The Liquid Sourdough Starter (LEVAIN) is much easier to manage and refresh than traditional Sourdough. However, it has a much lower “leavening power.” For this reason, it is suitable for use in “lean” doughs such as bread, pizza, or some pastries with little fat, such as croissants.

  1. Salve,
    se rinfresco il lievito madre, la parte che poi utilizzo per quante ore può stare fuori frigo prima di impastare? Lo chiedo perché se facessi il rinfresco ammettiamo alle 7/7.30 e lo lascio fuori frigo, in casa ho 19 gradi circa, é troppo tardi impastare verso le 17? Ho visto che la mia pasta madre ora con circa 18 gradi in casa raddoppia in 6 ore in forno spento con solo luce accesa.
    Se invece ci sono più gradi in casa, come succede in estate, quanto tempo può stare fuori frigo?

    Buonasera quindi ditemi se ho capito bene il lievito madre va sempre rinfrescato prima di essere utilizzato anche se lo utilizzo ogni 2 giorni ??? Giusto ???? Va sempre fatto il rinfresco ????

    1. Ciao Alessia,
      sì, ogni volta che usi il lievito madre nelle ricette, dovrai prima effettuare i 2 o 3rinfreschi preparatori!

      A presto

  3. Buongiorno
    per un problema intestinale ho necessità di preparare il pane di segale integrale con pasta madre, senza utilizzare farine di tipo diverso.
    Posso mantenere le stesse dosi?
    Grazie mille.

    1. Ciao Tania, usane leggermente meno, perché la farina di segale acidifica molto. Ed aggiungi anche un pò di sale, se puoi!
      A presto
