What tools do you need to bake sourdough?

Sourdough doesn’t require many specialized products to use.  There are a few things you need to make keeping and using your sourdough starter easier. At the very least, you need a jar to keep it in. 

Other tools you use depend on what kind of recipes you are creating with it. Simpler recipes require items you probably already have on hand – mixing bowls, rolling pins, a mixer, etc. 

One item I do recommend everyone who uses sourdough to own is a scale to measure out flour and water with. This is especially handy for feeding your starter.

More advanced technical sourdough bread baking recipes do require different tools that you might need, but that depends on each recipe.

Here is my guide to my favorite resources and bread tools for baking with your sourdough starter!
