Willing to share some starter?

My sister in Sydney would like to start making some sourdough bread, but I don't think AQIS would be that happy with me sending some of my starter over to her from NZ!  So I was wondering if one of you Aussies with a nice mature firm starter would mind posting some of it to my sister?

Yours hopefully,

Hi Karniecoops,

It could be arranged, but wouldn't your sister enjoy developing her own?  You'd have to admit that it is pretty easy.

Send me a PM if you want to progress though I generally run mine at 100% hydration so if you wanted a firm one (?%hydration) I would have to adjust.  Alternatively, could send a piece of dough from my next loaf.



No, my sister isn't interested in the "pfaffing" of creating a starter, she just wants to make the bread (too impatient!) - even though yes, it is easy enough to do!  I think liquid levain would be too dangerous (ie leaky) to post, so pice of dough would do the trick nicely.

Will send PM with details.

Many thanks :o)
