Dried sourdough starter
One of my coworkers has expressed interest in my sourdough breads and is thinking about starting to make some herself. I offered to share my starter with her and she is pretty enthusiastic. She is moving soon so I dried some of it, thinking it would be a lot easier, and more convenient, for her to travel with it and start it whenever. How should I tell her to "revive" it? Should I just tell her to dissolve it in water and feed it like ususal? Or is there an extra step to take?
Also, I live in the northern U.S. and right now the temperature is pretty moderate. I feed my starter twice a day and it is pretty active. She is moving south, where I am guessing it will be a lot warmer. Can she still follow the same schedule/amounts with my starter and will it adjust? Or will she need to feed it more often, or with less starter/flour? Or can't we know until she gets there?
