Sourdough bread is enjoying a bit of a renaissance. Now that it’s trendy again, we’ve had a lot of interest in our simplified sourdough bread recipe! Alex has been making sourdough bread regularly for the past 2 years. He’s been honing and honing his bread recipe, tweaking it to make it as repeatable as possible. Alex also wanted to simplify the process, so though it spans 3 days, it’s pretty simple to master once you’ve practiced a few times. 

Finally after 2 years, we were ready to share our best sourdough bread recipe with the world! To make it even easier to follow, we created a Sourdough Bread Recipe video, where Alex shows you what it looks like on the steps for each day. He also created a printable checklist so you can remember which step you’re on. Take a look and let us know how it goes!
