I just started my “Beast” sourdough starter, and already thinking about the next delicious bread I am going to make but I am not sure how much of it can be used in 1kg flour.
I am new to this adventure and loving every moment 😊

I am new to using sourdough this year, and have been learning a lot on the internet. Google has been really useful to me. When I feed my starter, I use a scale and measure equal parts starter, flour, and water. The King Arthur web site is very helpful, and so is this web page from
Happy baking!

Thank you Lesley I will take a look at this site.

This is the recipe that got me started making sourdough bread. I appreciated the photos in the instructions. They helped me know how things were supposed to look. You'll need a dutch oven to bake it in.

The King Arthur web site has a great recipe for sourdough pancakes that use the discard from feeding your sourdough. It makes a big batch and they freeze beautifully.

They also have a really good cracker recipe:

Thanks. Have you used all purpose flour in place of bread flour?
Lesley J. October 11, 2020
Yes, I use all purpose flour. Sometimes if I have a bag of whole wheat flour, I'll mix in a few scoops when I fill my all purpose flour jar. That gives it a little bit of whole wheat, but not noticeable. The sourdough seems to like a taste of whole wheat. I tend to wing it. It is very forgiving.
