Super Starter

My starters are always very strong.  I was a little worried though as I took a fairly long tip to India, how my main source would do. Apparently, it really wanted to get out and be made it to bread. I found it totally healthy, but half had escaped into the refrigerator!. Made a bunch of nice loaves after a feeding.

That is one lively starter. Sorry you had to clean up that mess.

Was not bad to clean up. I actually took that chunk, put in a freezer bad and tucked in the freezer for backup. It still had lots of life to it.

It looks like the starter was placed near the top of the refrigerator. The bottom shelf should be a little cooler.

But it sure is great to see your starter “breaking out” of its container :D

I don't think placement would have mattered much in this case. It has lived there for years, just was super active that day after several bakes and feedings. It happens now and again, thought it would be fun to share.

I’d be happy to have to clean up a mess like that. We should all be so fortunate :-)
