My husband has taken over the daily bread making and I have only an advisory role. Yay. And our daughter made us a sourdough starter for xmas. It's working well and we feed it with rye or kamut flour and water regularly, and it seems happy and healthy. But what about when we go away? We may go away for a week soon, and sometimes it can be for more in the summer. We have a neighbor come and feed the cat, but i don't think i can ask her to feed the starter. So i need to know
How long will it last in the fridge without feeding?
Can it be frozen? (poor little starter, will it need a scarf in there?)
I never wanted to make sourdough because the idea of keeping another living thing alive was too much for me. Now we have it and I can't let it die!
