Took one of the jars to dehydrate it.
Hope it works. My dehydrator is just on fan, no heat.

If anyone would like some just let me know, dont think i can ship internationally.

I live 8 miles from the gulf of mexico and 20 miles north of the everglades, who knows what kind of taste it will get.

My sourdough is happy, fed 2 times daily with unbleached flour and filtered water.

I ordered some of that old one Dan posted while back. That starter dries pretty fast. I still have my original in freezer. Need to test to see if still good. I seen some things not suppose to keep in freezer but my brewing yeast been in there several years add still works good.

Definitely a good way to store discarded starter. Just reconstitute when needed. Keep us in the loop. 🍻

Be interesting to see how long your Florida culture would thrive way up here in Minnesota.
I may PM you in December when wife and I start our first snowbird winter in Florida

I tried a "legacy" starter from Oregon and it didn't flourish.
Once the local yeasts took hold I had a great culture.

Try 4,500 to 5,000 years, and it doesn't need to be frozen.

I keep my dried discard in a sealed mason jar in the freezer, but it doesn't need to be frozen although freezing it is not going to hurt it.

Yup been dehydrating my starter for years and it has been sent out all over the world. Always make sure it is labeled properly or the border guards might think its some illegal substance. LOL
