I may have saved my starter from impending death!

April 29, 2008 - 12:30pm -- Felila

I've been busy the last couple of weeks and forgetting my weekly sourdough feeding. Pouring off the hooch, yes, feeding it, no.

Yesterday I resolved to feed the poor little starter. When I pulled it out of the refrigerator, opened the jar, and smelled ... uh-oh. Didn't smell right. But I made up some flour and water, put in a teaspoon of the old starter, threw out the rest, and hoped for the best. Left it overnight. This morning, it still didn't smell right.
