why is my starter not rising?
I had sourdough starter that I dehydrated and put in a hermetic glass container for a year and when I tried reactivating it, it would slightly bubble but never rise. I've tried repeatedly -- what am I doing wrong? Should I use different flour? The dehydrated starter smells acetic so I'm not sure why it's not rising for me to make the great fluffy loaves I made last year before I stored it away. Please help! Thank you :)
