All you need to do is pop your starter jar inside Goldie and flip the auto-warming switch on when you want your starter to be most active. You can always turn the auto-warming switch off when you want your starter at room temperature.
Goldie tracks the temperature inside the glass cloche and provides just enough gentle warmth to keep your sourdough starter happy. Goldie will never overheat your starter. Best of all...you can shave an hour or more off of the typical doubling time of your starter whether you keep it in the fridge or on the counter.
Just Enough Info
Goldie’s top temperature indicator helps you understand how your starter is feeling.
Without the help of auto-warming, most baker's kitchens are in the blue all year round. Goldie's job is to keep your starter out of the blue zone whenever you want active starter.
Live with these three temperature lights for a bit and you will start seeing the world through the eyes of your starter. You starter will become less mysterious and more dependable.
Just in Case - Cooling for the Hot Kitchen
What if your AC breaks on a hot summer day? Well we made the Sourhouse Cooling Puck to help your starter get back into the Goldilocks Zone.
Just take a Cooling Puck out of the freezer and put it on top of your jar to cool things down while you are preparing your starter for a bake.
Goldie will provide just enough warmth to keep your starter from dropping below the Goldilocks Zone while using a Cooling Puck.
