Help with starter


Hi my starter used to work perfectly fine.  I forgot to feed it one day about a week ago and ever since then it smells like cheese.  Not moldy or rotten cheese, but like a fresh string cheese.  I have continued to dump half and refeed like I do every morning, and the starter seemed healthy.  It has bubbles and passed the float test, yet the past two loaves I have made were dense and barely rose.  Todays came out like frisbees..  The bread still tastes good, it just isn't rising anymore.  I didn't change anything  in my preparation process.  Any ideas of what might be happening? Thank you

Depending on your method of refreshing your starter and how strong it is. If its strong enough, you shouldn't have to feed it everyday
