Mmmm me confuddled too   Was just telling me OH that we can freeze herman if required and he said no you cant..it will kill him.

The only thing that I can think of and I am not good at science is that it needs warmth to grow. Maybe fridgeing it wont kill it per se but rather stops it's development - freezer will halt development instantly but then can be restarted in a warm place.....

Clutching at straws here......molecular scientist on board anywhere????


That's my thinking too

My Herman arrived safely yesterday and is now "festering" away on the worktop.

Unless you already have homes for him, I would be interested in any offspring, Claire. I'll pay the p&p.
As he has sucessfully made it to Lincs, a trip to Yorkshire should be a doddle for him?

Like I say - only if you're looking for a home for him

I've just realised that he's a sourdough   You can freeze sourdough starters, I've done it with bread starters in the past.

Herman has arrived safe and sound - there was a satisfying fizz when I opened the bottle  
Just glad he didn't explode!
Thank you
