Making a sourdough dough into starter

I received a large fistful size of amazing raw sourdough from a baker an I'd like to make it into a starter.  Can someone please give me some guidance?

That's what that raw sourdough is.  Now you just have to feed it and maintain it.  Here's a link to Wild Yeast which talks about the process.

Hope you thanked that baker!

Good Luck!!
