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
- Sourdough maintenance 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
It include also instructions how to make the first sourdough (starter) , and recipe for basic sourdough

Important: this app is not build to provide bread recipes but more as calculator to help create and maintain the sourdough + scale up/down dough for sourdough bread for bakers among us.

Important Note:
This App made to assist bakers.

Ratings and Reviews

This app is broken


Won’t open without an update! Currently unusable.

So basic it's not much use


This type if app has the ability to be a strong tool for the baker - both pro and armature. But this app is so basic it adds nothing to aid the process. As stated by other - the app would be helpful if by imputing the flour weight and hydration goal the remainder of the values would be filled in. Currently there is no provision for starter hydration and it impact in the final dough. This is nothing but a styled calculator. It is a very good aide in writing recipes - but what I want, and think others would want - is a program that does not require additional pencil and paper writing an note taking.

A "C" for Effort

I bought this expecting more. I was looking for an app that would allow for the entry of a total dough weight at varying levels of hydration. It would then provide the flour/water/starter amounts necessary, taking into account the hydration level of the starter. Perhaps Mr. Netenel, the developer, could provide this in an updated version. It would also help to have someone proofread the text. Until then, save your $1.99.
