reviving old starter


Has anyone experience of reviving an old starter that has been languishing ina fridge for a few months?  It smells OK, in that sourdoughy funky way! Its been neglected and I have not fed it for some time.  I wanted to see if it was worth reviving before starting again.

Depending on what the starter looks like (no mold or pinkish colors, you should be able to the top coating off pull a small amount of the starter out and start feeding it. As long as it acts normal you should be ready to go.

Good luck.!
