Sourdough Sandwich Loaf Supply List
You can get these supplies anywhere. I only add this list out of convenience to you. If you use my links, I get a couple pennies per item - which I appreciate. Grandma always told me to pick up pennies as you never know when you will need them!
1. You will need sourdough starter. If we are doing a lesson with me, this will be included. Our starter is active, full of life and flavor - just waiting to be revived in your kitchen. You can purchase dried starter for me using link above. If you purchased dry starter, follow the directions to reactivate it.
2. A digital scale is a must. It will make baking all sorts of sourdough treats easier. Any brand will work. Costco and Target sell nice ones. But, they will all lead to frustration in the end! haha
3. If you want to make a sandwich loaf, I only recommend the USA Bakeware pan which is available in a 13" or 9" pullman pan. You want the one with the lid as it makes a better loaf. If they do not have the pullman type, you can use any of their sandwich loaf pans. But I like this brand the best as the sourdough does not stick to it.

4. Bench scraper. We use this to shape the dough. The first is a nice set, but the second is fine too.
5. Spray oil or some type of oil to grease the pan with. I use avocado oil.
6. Large bowl and plastic wrap to cover the bowl with.
7. You can keep your starter in a mason jar. But I really prefer tulip bottom Weck jars. They are easier to work with because they are wider.
For flours, I use unbleached all purpose flour , artisan or bread flour and whole wheat flour. If you are local and do a lesson with me, I can provide a sampler of all of these for your first loaf.
