Neglected starter questions?
OK, I left it in the fridge for a few weeks all by it self with no care at all.
I took it out and it looked funny, liquid on top and some discoloration "spots" on the surface both on the dry places above the liquid as well as under the liquid, but after I mixed it up it looked and smelled (yeasty) just like I think a starter should.
I added a little flour and it looked normal so will give it a try.
Now the questions.
1: Can a starter go bad and not be safe to eat?
2: If it can go bad, how can I tell?
