Precise temperature control.
With the Sourdough Home you can easily control the temperature of your starter. With the degree-precise temperature control from 5 – 50 °C, you can maintain a constant temperature or vary the temperature to control the growth rate, aroma and taste of your bread.
Your sourdough starter. Your schedule.
Adjust the feeding schedule, from hours to days, even once a week, and vary the temperature to control the aroma and flavor profile of your bread.
Heats when it is too cool.

Care of the sourdough starter
A sourdough starter is a living colony of yeast and good bacteria. Like any living creature, it needs food – just flour and water. Feeding the starter the right ingredients at the right time is the first step to making good sourdough bread. With the Sourdough Home’s precise temperature control, you can adjust the starter’s feeding times to fit your schedule.
As the starter ferments and grows, CO2 bubbles are created, causing the mixture to rise in its container. The ideal time to feed the starter is when the rise has peaked, i.e. all the food has been used up, and before it starts to fall again. By using a constant germination ratio (amount of flour and water) and controlling the temperature, you can set the feeding schedule to hours, days or even a week. Use the guidelines below to get started.
|Temperature||Time for feeding||Ratio|
|7 °C||5 days / 120 hours||1:4:4|
|10 °C||3 days / 72 hours||1:4:4|
|12 °C||2 days / 48 hours||1:4:4|
|20 °C||1 day / 24 hours||1:4:4|
Ratio: This is the ratio of active culture to fresh flour and water. The more active culture used, the faster your starter will grow and reach its peak. For daily maintenance, a 1:4:4 ratio ensures that your starter thrives without growing too fast.
Note: Your starter may vary slightly from these results depending on the flour you use and the specifics of your culture.
