I'm aware that it's possible to dry starter and restore it to life months later by adding water.
I've got two great active starters going now after an intial battle to get anything happening, and would like to dry some for two reasons: 1. insurance against anything happening to my current ones 2. I have a friend in another state who wants to try sourdough baking but lacks the patience to make his own starter. I would like to post him some of mine, dried.
So, if anyone has successfully dried their starter and later restored it to life with water, wouldja mind letting me know how you went about the drying part please?
