For those of you who have nice old, very alive sourdough starters and you don't sell chametz gamur - what are you doing? I feel so upset at the thought of throwing it out!

We threw it out.
I was just wondering what happened in the days before yeast on a year like this when you can’t make a new starter quick enough for shabbos? Did they just eat matzah for another week?

How do you make new starter? I got starter from someone and am not so happy to throw it out because I don’t know if I’d be able to get again. So can anyone lmk how to make it from scratch? Thanks!

Yes.

That is what they did.

Either matzah or pita.

I see someone on Instagram who says her Rav lets her give it to a friend as a gift before pesach.

After pesach, friend gives it back to her as a gift.

I made my own, it’s really simple and easy.

Start with
100G water
50G w/w flour
50G white spelt flour

Mix it well, leave it on your counter loosely covered, if you’re using a mason jar only add the top lid not the ring, if using a deli container just plop the cover on top without sealing it.
Every day you take off 50G of that mixture and add the same measurements of flour and water.
Mine took almost 3 weeks to become active.

Good luck!
