Gluten Free Brown Rice Sourdough Starter

I love sourdough and was happy to find that a starter could be made with gluten free flour. This was a recipe that I found on line and tweaked a bit. It is made with commercial yeast. I may try my hand later on with growing a wild yeast starter but time will tell. For the moment I am happy to be doing some sourdough baking again.

Ready In:

Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons commercial yeast
  • 2 cups warm filtered water
  • 2 cups brown rice flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

directions

  • Dissolve the yeast in the warm water in a sterilized glass jar or crock. Allow to become bubbly, stir in the brown rice flour and brown sugar. Cover and allow to stand overnight.
  • The next morning stir down the starter with a wooden spoon and if the mixture is very thin stir in an additional 1/2 cup flour and 1 teaspoon sugar. Stir several times throughout the day.
  • After 24 hours the mixture should have a slight sour odor. The starter can be used at this point.
  • When feeding the starter use these guidelines: If using 1 cup of the starter, feed remaining starter with 1 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon brown sugar and filtered water. I like my starter a little on the thick side.
  • Starter should be fed weekly and may be kept in the refrigerator between feedings.

    I made the sourdough mix. Smell and looks perfect. What is a good recipe for making brown rice sourdough bread (Gf). I'm making for my hubby or is celiac. So a good recipe with this starter would be very helpful

    This stuff is GREAT! So far I've made bread and english muffins with this starter and they have been fabulous! I found that when I feed it, if I use 1 c flour, 1 tsp brown sugar, it takes about 3/4 c water to bring it back to it's original consistency. It's been so easy to work with. Thanks!

    Made this to use in your Multi-Grain Sourdough Waffles recipe! So easy & very nice to have on hand, as the 2 of us are also big on sourdough! Thanks for sharing it!
