Is it safe to keep my starter in a fridge with an antibacterial filter?

November 1, 2012 - 2:16am -- brødfyr

Hi, I have recently moved and as part of that bought a new refrigerator which has some antibacterial air circulation system built in. Sounds good on the box, but I didn't stop to think about how it could affect my sourdough starter...

Yes, I keep my starter in the fridge, it works better for me this way since I only use it 2/3 times a week. I keep it in a tupperware tub with a piece of string under the lid so it just gets a tiny bit of air to stop the lid popping off.

Has anyone else got such a fridge and been able to keep their starter in there?
