Freezing Starter

I actually usually freeze one of my starters in a ziploc freezer bag just to have an extra in case anything happens to the one I have out on hand. I kept my starter going for many years this way.

Unfortunately, my last starter was knocked out of the freezer and and destroyed...Cry

I have never used frozen starter directly in a recipe, but it has always worked fine for continuing the starter process. I take it out and thaw it. Then stir it and count that as day 1. After that I just continue like the recipe says stirring it every day and feeding it on days 5 and 10.
