The Letters R and S are for: Reviving Sedrick-the-Starter

This might prove a multi-disk adventure. I removed a frozen disk of Sedrick from the freezer this afternoon and thawed him at room temperature. He was alive. He bubbled and frothed. I greeted his awakening with all the gusto one might expect from re-united Masonic Temple members. Secret handshakes and mysterious words encrypted behind blooming and bursting bubbles…

And then I grabbed the wrong bag of flour to fed him.

I grabbed the organic spelt.

I meant to grab the organic rye.

If he survives this, he’ll be doing the local Christmas pantomime in December because only a star could survive such a misadventure.

Stay with me, Sedrick, and stay clear of that tunnel with that shining light…

  1. I’m laughing, not because of your predicament but your wonderful way with words 🙂
    Come on Sedrick, you can do it!

    How is Sedrick doing this morning? Did his spell in cryo convince him of his immortality? I tried freezing mine once and it didn’t really work, so I just leave it in the back of the fridge if I’m going away. I have dried starter though and revived it, but it takes almost as long as making a new one from scratch. Doc sent me some of his one time and I revived that and it bubbled along in an Oregonian way until it was overwhelmed by the local yeasts.

      Joanna, there are one or two bubbles but so far nothing impressive enough to suggest that we qualify as a life form. I’ll keep at it for a few more days. Next time I’ll just push the jar to the back of the fridge as you do. I’m not sure why I thought freezing was the best option… Obviously I was dreaming.

      As you’ll see from today’s Letter T, Sedrick is climbing the walls again.
