hello!

I'M HUCK FROM CHICAGO.  I'VE BEEN EXPERIMENTING WITH VARIOUS BREAD RECIPES FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS.  I MADE MY OWN STARTER ABOUT 5 YEARS AGO...BUT AFTER STORING IT IN THE FRIG FOR WAY TO LONG....I JUST HAD TO TOSS IT.  IT TOOK ME NEARLY A MONTH TO GET IT GOING BUT I DID SAVE SOME...BY DRYING IT OUT IN SHEETS.  I THEN BROKE UP THE SHEETS INTO SMALLER PIECES AND VACUUM SEALED THEM IN JARS.  NOW I HAVE TRIED TO "WAKE" UP (BY HYDRATION AND FLOUR) ..WITH NO SUCCESS.  HAS ANYONE TRIED THIS BEFORE?
