Thank you Mike Avery and bwraith
I wanted to thank you both and if you don't mind, ask another couple questions.
First, I followed your advice on storing my starters for about ten days and they are just fine. The white one looked brownish, but had almost no hooch and rose within four hours when I fed it. The rye looks fine too, and as I have left it for longer periods and had no rye yesterday, it will get fed today.
So, my question is, if my starter acted perfectly normal and I have just fed it a second time, does it need a longer recouperation period or can it get back to work this afternoon?
