I made a starter last Friday, 6 days ago, thinking I was going to be able to brew last Saturday or Sunday. Ran out of time. I had the starter on a stir plate till Sunday. Sunday I pulled it off and put it in the fridge. It has been in the fridge since. Had a foam stopper in it all the time. How long will it last in the fridge?

I don't love that it has the foam stopper still, since it's cooled and is no longer off-gassing to keep positive pressure...so I'd cover it more "permanently" for the time being. Other than that there's nothing wrong with storing it this way. Should be plenty viable for another week or so.

Gotcha. Makes sense. I'll throw some aluminum foil on it. Hopefully I will get to use it Sunday!
