Purchase My Sourdough Starter

By Amanda Paa – Updated March 7, 2022

Ready to start baking sourdough bread?

Trying to create a sourdough starter on your own can be difficult and take the course of 2-3 weeks. Instead, acquiring a sourdough starter from someone that is strong and mature is the easiest and most effective route! You can buy part of my mature, organic sourdough starter (wild yeast) that has been lovingly cared for and fed for over 15+ years, with original heritage from Australia! You’ll be ready to bake within a week.

You’ll also receive detailed instructions on how to feed and maintain your starter to create the wonderful sourdough bread you know and love. 

The cost is $12, and includes shipping. Orders are shipped out 1-2 business days via USPS first class mail, in a shelf stable state so you do not need to be home to receive. Order here:

And you’ll be on your way to baking beautiful sourdough bread, like this!

  2. Tracy Weatherall

    Hi Amanda! I’m so excited I found you looking for a recipe to roast vegetables for canning!
    I’ve tried my hardest to make sourdough bread with many different starters and zero luck. I’d love to take your class. Warm Regards, Tracy

    • Amanda Paa

      Hi Tracy! Great to hear from you. Are you in the MN/WI area? I have information on my local sourdough classes here.

  3. Cindy

    Can I buy your sour dough starter?
    Thank you Cindy Morey

  4. Anna

    Hi. If I’m not baking for a couple days and my starter is in the fridge should I still feed starter everyday and put it back? Thanks

    • Amanda Paa

      Hi Anna! Just make sure it’s fed before going into the fridge, then you don’t need to feed it every day while it is in there. It will slow the fermentation to a snail’s pace. Just discard and feed when you take it out.
