Sourdough calculator is very useful app for anyone who bakes sourdough bread or other bakery goods
based on sourdough.
It is implementing the following:
- Bakers Percentages calculator

- Instruction to create first sourdough starter
- Organic Whole Wheat recipe
1) Bakers Percentages - in which flour is the primary ingredient in calculating bakers percentage and is always set as 100% of the recipes ratio.
This calculator gives option to scale up or down the dough you want to prepare
2) Sourdough Calculator- Built to assist sourdough elaboration /feed (starter) which can be used in the following situations:
- first creation for the sourdough which usally takes 6 days
in this stage you can select hydration to 50%.
- Maintain (75% hydration) sourdough (every 2 weeks if no bread was baked from it)
- Rise up the sourdough activity before making the bread
Hydration can be set in this calculator according to the desired level
50% for start/create sourdough
75% for maintenance after first bread when you want to refresh the sourdough
The principle is to triple the sourdough weight and keep same hydration percentages of the sourdough
