    My husband is a baker and makes amazing sour dough (when we have the starter). It is supposed to smell “acidic” or “sour” because it is fermenting, after all – so don’t worry about smell.

    If its alive and well, you should be good to give some to your mother. Just make sure you tell her how to charge it to keep it alive!

    It depends on how big the starter is… I would see if you can get ahold of inf. From Peter Reinhart online or at the library or something. He should have something in there about how much starter you need before you can separate it.
