I am trying to save my 12 yr old starter! I got busy one day and after mixing up some bread threw all my starter away without taking some out to feed. So thankfully I had an emergency backup. This had been in the fridge about 2 yrs? I take it out let in warm a little than fed, and put in a warm place. Well I forgot about it and the warm place turned into a hot place! after about 8 hours I remembered! Now it has been a few days of feeding 3 times a day. I am still unsure if I am fighting a losing battle or not. It has a few bubbles when I go to feed, but the smell is not right, just smells like wet flour. Is there still hope or do I just let it go???
