  • 10 g starter yeast
  • 1 and ⅓ cup of water
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 4 cups of bread flour


  • We take 10 grams of starter yeast, add 25 g of water and 25 g of flour to it, mix and let it rise until it doubles in volume.
  • It will take 4-12 hours.
  • Put the finished yeast in a bowl, add water, flour, salt and knead the dough thoroughly.
  • Cover with a towel and leave to rise for about an hour.
  • Then roll out the dough on a floured roll and fold it like a wrap.
  • Then we fold it in half and shape it into a ball.
  • Let rise again for 30 minutes.
  • We repeat this process one or two more times.
  • From now on, let the bread ferment for 7-10 hours at room temperature.
  • We should see the dough bubbling beautifully and multiplying in volume.
  • We shape the loaf into a ball one last time, which we squeeze so that the excess bubbles come out.
  • Let it rise for another hour and a half already in a container lined with baking paper.

  • wholemeal flour
  • plain wheat flour
  • lukewarm water


  • We will need a larger canning jar (700 ml).
  • On the first day, mix 50 g of wholemeal flour, 50 g of plain flour and 100 g of water.
  • Cover with food foil, which we pierce to allow the yeast to breathe.
  • Let it work at room temperature for 24 hours.
  • The next day, mix the yeast and let it rise again for 24 hours.
  • On the third to seventh day, we repeat the same procedure as follows: We take 50 g of the leavened yeast, add 100 g of smooth wheat flour and 100 g of water to it. We repeat this every day until the seventh day, when the yeast is ready for baking.
  • How do we know that the yeast is ready? Try immersing a piece in a glass of water. If it floats above the surface, it’s done.
  • If not, just feed it and let it ferment.
  • It is a good idea to mark the height of the sourdough while starting the sourdough.
  • If its volume has doubled, it is only correct (it decreases in the process of feeding, and then grows).
  • Put the finished yeast in the refrigerator.
  • Before baking or feeding, take it out of the fridge and let it activate for 3 hours.
  • We should feed him at least once or twice a week.
  • It is also fed after removing the sourdough for bread, we must have 50 g of sourdough left.
