I had baked yeasted breads occasionally for years. I met a woman through a neighborhood Facebook group whose FB picture was a loaf of bread. She told me it was sourdough and I should check out the FB group, Perfect Sourdough. I did. I was intrigued by the gorgeous photos of sourdough breads and so I took an online course from Teresa L Greenway and I have not bought a loaf of bread since.
It is extremely resilient. I can leave it in the refrigerator dormant for months and when I take it out it has some dark brown hooch on top but still smells good. I take a tablespoon or so out from the middle, put it in a jar with 40g each of organic whole grain flour and filtered water and do this every 12 hours (using just a tablespoon from the previous batch each time) and it comes fully back
