Sourdough starter


I created a starter a week ago(first time). It rises but not a lot. Now I realized I need to travel for a few days. Can I put it in the fridge and continue when I am back? ( it is nor ready yet..)

thank you!!

Feed it first. It will surive in your refrigerator a much longer time htan you might think. Start a feeding program to build it up when you have time.
