Using starter after refrigerating?
I am going away over the weekend and i need to put my starter on hold for 3 days. So how do i start using it again after taking it out of the fridge?
Leave it to room remperature? Feed it immediately? What do i do?
Then carry on as normal - is the usual way.
For myself I see no reason in carrying on straight away and waiting that extra time it needs (the difference between a 6 and two 3's). Or feed it using warm water.
I keep my mother starter in the refrigerator 24-7. When I want to bake I use a small amount around 57 grams or less to build a fresh levain. Sometimes I will keep the levain in the refrigerator for a day to develop further flavor or if I can't bake right away.
