    Will I add both 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup water each time I feed the starter? The recipe says just flour, but it seems that the ratio will quickly overwhelm the liquid aspect of the starter?

      Yes, equal parts of flour and water – and I made it a little more clear in the recipe as well.

    I’ve been experimenting with my gluten-free brown rice sourdough starter (no other ingredients or yeast), and found a few things that speed up the process. Use a plastic bowl, 80 degree F water, and feed much more often. Hooch (the greyish liquid) is something one should avoid developing, not just drain off. I hope this helps someone!

    If you have let’s say a brown rice sourdough starter can you use it on a different kind of gluten free flour based bread like a rice/buckwheat/blah blah mix?

      Hi Rachel,

      Well, the thing is, the sourdough starter is specifically for sourdough bread. I’ve never used it for anything other than a sourdough bread so I’m not really sure how it would ‘perform’.

      So I’m sorry, I really don’t have a definite answer for you.

      But I’m all about experimenting, so if you try it, please let me know. I’m curious now!

    So when you add yeast you have adulterated your sourdough. And lots of allergic people cannot do added yeast. It takes my sourdough bread a long time to rise but I don’t use yeast other than the sourdough starter. I feed my starter with sorghum or sweet rice flour mostly but occasionally add some buckwheat or teff–it eats it. The only flour I quit using to feed it was garbanzo-don’t like that bean flavor.

    I quit trying to cook anything but sourdough bread because it didn’t work well. Also, besides the celiac kid he is allergic to corn, garlic, black pepper, nuts, watermelon & lots of other stuff.
