Reliable starter sellers

In addition to [trying to] make my own starter, I wanted to get a couple that were already started. I ordered one from Breadtopia, sent out for the Oregon Trail Society sample, but I wanted to see if I could get some additional recommendations for where to get cultures from. 

 

Thanks!

hi-

you might want to wait until after you get the starters you ordered,  When I started baking I had the starter my neighbor gave me & ordered the King Arthur one & it just was too much.  One great started is all you need, if you have 2 it's dble the feeding etc. It can get really out of hand.  I ended up just combining mine & I leave it on the counter so it is fed daily except when I go out of town it moves to the fridge. 

Not to discourage you but it gets a bit crazy to deal with! Happy baking,

Margie

Ditto! Omg start nurture and care for one! or you will become a culture hoarder who is constantly worried about cross contamination! But honestly this is fun to me and anything but stress.

However I have been at it a long time!

Start with one Carl's is perfect and make it your own!
Have fun!
