Drying a starter. Is it possible?
I've recently discovered this website and think it looks fantastic.
I've just been wondering recently if it is possible to dry, and therefore keep indefinitely, a soughdough starter.
If you were to spread some starter out on a baking tray, let it completely dry out for a few days and then flake it into an airtight bag, would you then be able to bring it back to life at a much later date?
Has anybody tried this as I'm tempted to give it a go in case I ever kill my starter.
Thanks, and I look forward to learning a lot more from this site in future.
