30. How can I ship my starter to someone else?

Subject: 30. How can I ship my starter to someone else?

Take refreshed starter at peak yeast activity, and add flour to make "noodle dough". Roll it flat so that 2/3 oz. or so fills a postal envelope. (A postal employee wrote suggesting a cassette mailing box available cheaply from Radio Shack -- dg) Wrap it in cling plastic and mail it ordinary first class. It should be so dry as to resemble slightly damp cardboard.

I assume a white flour starter fed and compounded with same. A week in the mail will not bother it. It can be stored in the frig for months in this form.
