Making Sourdough Starter
It generally takes around 2 - 3 weeks to cultivate a reliably fermenting starter (called 'active' starter). Starters usually become stronger and more reliable over time.
The process of making starter only requires flour, water and a mixing/storage vessel. One of the best methods is provided here, by SourDom.
Mixing flour and water together encourages natural yeast and bacteria to ferment. It is a very simple concept and very satisfying process.

Tasmania has perfect climate and soils for growing spelt.
This particular spelt is grown in the North-West of Tasmania. The grain is bagged by the farmer and travels 2 hours to Callington Mill in Oatlands. Here it is freshly milled into medium-fine flour by slow turning wind-driven stones.
Callington Mill Wholegrain SPELT Flour is suitable for adding to your sourdough starter, in breadmaking and cake making and can be combined with lighter flours to enhance texture and flavour..
