Red Fife Sour Starter

This is a day 1 step of my Red Fife Sour Starter

The Starter

red fife flour 5 g 0.18 oz 0.64 tbspns 100.00%
water 5 g 0.18 oz 0.32 tbspns 100.00% (hydration)
Total Weight: 10 grams / 0.35 ounces
Total Flour Weight: 5 grams / 0.18 ounces

Bakers percentages are relative to flour weight (flour equals 100%) and every other ingredient is a percentage of this. Flour from the Starter is not counted. Note: This recipe was uploaded in grams and has been automatically converted to other measures, let us know of any corrections.


Combine the two ingredients and leave covered in your favorite starter container overnight (up to 12 hours). Continue this feeding daily until you have enough (or a bit more) to make the Red Fife Bread recipe.
