Consistency of Sourdough Starter: TIPS

Natasha Krajnc

Ideally, sourdough starter should be identical to the consistency of warm peanut butter.

When it’s reached its peak, your starter should be thick, airy, and mousse-like.

If your sourdough is runny or watery, you might have to switch a couple of things to make it a little bit thicker.

The problem with a runny or watery starter is that it may not achieve what it’s supposed to.

A well maintained and ripe sourdough starter will double in size in around 3 to 8 hours.

It’ll have plenty of small and large bubbles running through, with no froth to be seen.
