How do you boost your sourdough starter to make it stronger? Add a bit of rye flour to it! Rye flour has lots of nutrients that your sourdough starter yeasts love including the enzyme "amylase". This enzyme helps convert flour into sugar for your yeast. Check out other sourdough starter tips on sourdoughbrandon.com
What's the difference between a sourdough starter and a levain? A sourdough starter and levain are essentially the same. They are both a mixture of fermented flour and water. However, a levain is often used as an offshoot of your "mother" sourdough starter. I use a levain in my recipes so I can feed my sourdough starter separately on its same schedule. I use ALL of the levain in my sourdough starter recipes. Learn more sourdough starter tips and how to make your own at sourdoughbrandon.com
