How Soon After Feeding Sourdough Starter Can I Use It

Natasha Krajnc

The best time to use your sourdough starter is once it has peaked (3-4 hrs after feeding).

Maintaining sourdough starter at cooler temperatures can mean that they may take longer to reach their peak.

Once it has achieved a good rise, the starter will remain there for a couple hours, and then collapse.

Different flour and levels of bacteria, followed by room temp and many other factors affect the rate at which sourdough starter rises.

We cannot guarantee a solid time to use your sourdough starter, you’ll have to make this decision.

Make it a habit to check your starter every 60 minutes after feeding.

An active sourdough starter will have a thick consistency, bubbling on the surface.
